And All That Jazz

Saturday 2nd May

“Come on baby, come on down, come on baby, come on down, let’s razzmatazz and all that jazz! ~ Marvin Gaye

Over on Weekly Prompts this Saturday, GC and my weekend challenge is our monthly colour challenge, and for May we have chosen a fun word – Razzmatazz!

No, not the liquêur, nor the Marvin Gaye song, nor the television series.

Razzmatazz is a red-pink colour that was invented by Crayola in 1993, and first made its appearance in the Big Box of 96!

And here’s my colourful response!

My initial thought when I first saw this colour was – This is going to be easy. On the other hand, all is not always what it seems. See for yourself.

Feeling quite certain that within my folders I would find an abundance of pink/red images I very soon found that a pink flower simply isn’t red and a red flower isn’t in the pink.


I hope you will agree that within these delicate petals there is a delightful fusion of pink variations and hopefully you will see my Razzmatazz!

  2. What a fun challenge! I DO see your Razzmatazz!!! What a beautiful colour! And your flowers are beautiful, too! 🙂
    I always wished I could get the job of naming the Crayola Crayons! 😀 HA! I could come up with some fun names! 😛
    Ha! I was just thinking…Razzmatazz isn’t just a colour, it’s an attitude! 😉 😀
    SweetSue…may your week ahead be rosy and filled with love! 💗

    PS…a box of crayons, markers, or colored pencils still makes me so giddy! 🙂

    1. I would love to name a flower. And YOU, Carolyn have just given me an idea!

      By the way, Your comment flashed up on my phone screen as I was making breakfast, I sat down to answer it, but it had disappeared and not in the notifications! Where was it? sitting in the Pending file next to the Spam! If I hadn’t noticed it flash up on the screen I wouldn’t have known it was there.
      Carolyn, thank you so much for your comments

      1. Maybe my comment was social distancing?! HA! 😀

        I have no idea why such things happen on WP. Lately I’ve been checking all of those places…”pending”, “spam”, etc., because I’ve been missing comments from people. 😦

        If I understood WP I could explain it to everyone and be a hero! Ha! But, not happening. 😀

  3. Your Flower photos are beautiful Sue, and I adore fuchsia flowers…… Maybe I’ll try and grow one in a pot soon…
    Haha… I’ve just written a poem about ‘a violet’, but I think it’ll fit in with your unusual prompt colour, “Razzmatazz”
