Looking for Burlywood

Did you know there’s a color named burlywood?

Neither did I! So I figured I’d be hard pressed to find something for this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge. But I was wrong! It was literally outside my front door.

That’s because burlywood is a medium light brown or brown sandy color. Which pretty much describes the color of my house though I’ve always thought of it as caramel and cream.

Now let’s move inside for a look at Benji who is patiently waiting.

Notice he’s back to his playful self after last week’s scare. Also notice that his beautiful belly has a hint of burlywood!

So there you have it!

By the way, in my quest to learn more about burlywood for Sunday Stills, I found out its ‘hex code’ value is deb887. And while I barely know what that means – it’s related to the red, blue and green components – I was able to use the information to create the custom color heading above in burlywood. Cool, huh?

Never let it be said you never learn anything on this blog. šŸ˜‰

  1. Wow, Susanne, your house is beautiful–burlywood is a wonderful neutral. Benji looks happy and what a great pic of him at the end attacking the string! Glad you found the color and kudos for making your heading–perfect!

    • Thanks so much Terri! I couldn’t get past the house color and Benji’s cute tummy! And it was fun to do the header in burlywood. I’d never used the custom font color quite like that before. I love learning something new no matter how small. šŸ˜Š

  2. I have never heard of Burleywood, so I am sticking with calling that colour ‘Caramel’. šŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Good to see Benji back to his usual self šŸ™‚ I like the angles you’ve found for your house photo too. I learned all about hex codes when setting up the styling for my own blog – what a good idea to use the colour for your heading!

    • Thanks! It’s great to have Benji back!! And it was fun to learn about hex codes and experiment with the custom color fonts. šŸ˜ŠšŸ˜Š

      • Yes, I enjoy that sort of experimentation too, and it’s amazing what you can do with WP when you just start fiddling a little bit šŸ™‚

  4. Wow! I had never heard of the color burlywood either! Sounds like a good vocabulary word for a Foster and Panda story. šŸ˜‚ And Benji is just too funny! šŸ±
