O is for Orange.......
I did this post for Alphabe Thursday and in my book, I covered orange pretty well...Here it is, a little refresher on my take on a color I love.......
O is for Orange...As in the color.....My life is all about color and Orange is a favorite......
Orange is flamboyant and energetic....
Orange is vibrant. It's a combination of red and yellow so it shares some common attributes with those colors. It denotes energy, warmth, and the sun. But orange has a bit less intensity or aggression than red, calmed by the cheerfulness of yellow.
There are orange flowers.
nasturtiums and calendula.....
beautiful orange vegetables and fruits...(I took these photos in Chinatown Hololulu)
How about the beauty of coconut prawns floating in a orange marmalade and red chili sauce?
Orange vegetables are super nutritous and good for you...Carrots, pumpkin, yams...Oranges are one of the few sources of bioflavenoids a vitamin that keeps your veins and cappilaries healthy...they are in the white part of the orange....yummy.
I love orange clothes too...They make a statement.
Here is a picture of me in my favorite "old navy" orange t shirt about six years ago....the pumpkin is wearing an orange wig just in case you wondered what all the fuzzy stuff is......
I even painted the kids space upstairs orange and accented it with turquoise.......so bright and happy!
orange you glad for the color orange?
Orange you glad this post is over.......
