The Gorgeous Colour Orange

Sunday Stills – Orange

What’s not to love about orange??

If you know anything about me at all, you’ll know it’s only my favourite colour!!

So I was thrilled to see the prompt for this week’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge is all about Orange.

In case you’re wondering how much I love orange –

  • I ordered an orange car which was originally delivered in red and I made them replace it for the orange one – that’s an example of just how serious I am!
  • I wore a bright orange dress to my daughter’s wedding last year and everyone said it was just what they expected me to wear.  Two years before I’d worn purple to my daughter’s wedding and everyone was perplexed as they’d assumed I’d wear orange! I did have an orange wrap to wear, so I hadn’t neglected my favourite colour all together.

  • I have lots of orange clothing including at least two amazing pairs of orange shoes, a million scarves, orange leather gloves, an orange purse, orange painted toenails…need I go on?
  • I love Autumn for the amount of orange colouring in the leaves

Orange in the garden

Over the weekend I visited a few Open Gardens as part of Tumbarumba Tastebuds and I was inspired.  I dutifully passed on my ideas to the head gardener, the Mathematician, who simply added them to the ever growing list!

But you know what?

As I drove into my driveway after a delightful day of warm spring sunshine, good conversations with friends, lovely gardens and happy endorphins flowing around my body – I stopped and noticed my happy, bouncy, bright orange Californian poppies in my very own garden!

These poppies don’t need any help to flower each year they just pop up (!) and line the driveway welcoming us home after every trip out.  So I took a few shots of my orange poppies to share with you.

I have enjoyed sharing some photos of my favourite colour.  I hope you’ve enjoyed it too.

Let me know if you like orange too.  Don’t worry we can still be friend if it’s not your favourite 🙂

    1. No Janis, we call them exactly that Californian Poppies!! I love their happiness and brightness which close up as the sun moves away from them. I’m lucky I can wear orange and yellow and red – and I do so with gay abandon 😂 thanks for visiting my orange corner of the universe 😊

  1. Hi Deb, a post full of happiness and positivity because that is what the colour orange means to me. I have an orange top that I wear during Summer and everyone always comments when I wear it. I love your autumn leaves and would love to have them in Brisbane. ‘Fall’ in the US is one of my favourite times and to be honest I didn’t realise we had this in Southern Australia. I will need to organise a visit next year to see this gorgeous display. Have a beautiful week, my friend and thanks for starting my week with a smile. xx

    1. Good morning Sue! Thanks for your lovely comment, you’ve brightened my day 🙂 You are welcome to visit anytime but I’m hoping to get to Brisbane before too long, so will let you know. I love autumn too but at the moment spring has my heart. I do love my orange!!


  2. Lovely photos , I love autumn leaves but sorry have to admit I’m not a fan of orange. My favourite colour is blue and my car is blue. I like to wear purple. My house is painted mainly yellow.. some lilac, some blue, green in the kitchen.. but was not my choice. Nice post.

    1. Phew, I’m glad we can still be friends Leanne! We can so offset each other when we meet up in person 🙂 everyone thought I was mad for persevering when they delivered the wrong colour but I’d already had a red car and wanted an orange one! I never used to like purple but I do now, especially as my MOB outfit was such a gorgorus shade of purple. Thanks for commenting 🙂
