But at which end of the chain are you? Wow, those orange bristles really pop!

Markus Spring said...

Hey, your combination of quotes and pictures is really fine. Thanks for making me smile once more.

Wow .. what a brilliant colour ... guess it makes sweeping snow more fun.

kobico, me, I am the master of my broom!

... else one runs the risk of being swept away.

Quite a colorful broom!

I knew this shock of color with a dusting of snow would bring lots of comments. We called those 'portvish' in Croatia when I was little. Perhaps a German word?

Martina said...

Tash, now my brain is saying "portvish portvish portvish" all the time, ;-)
Does not sound familiar, though.

@all: In Germany red coloured brooms are for outdoor usage while indoor brooms are black or brown. From your comments I conclude this is not an universal law ...

kobico said...

I've never heard the red for outdoor and black/brown for indoor rule. But I never pay attention to details like that, either! Ich bin nicht sehr aufmerksam.

gosh, i just love coming back to this one for a bit of colour in my otherwise white world. ;) Lizzy

Lizzy, Joan Elizabeth is amused that I choose colour for my snow photos, but I guess I am so sick of this white/grey world I live in at the moment - we haven't seen the sun for two weeks I think, is it still there somewhere? What about blue sky - does it still exist?
