Why would my family be an orange?
“If the family were a fruit, it would be an orange, a circle of sections, held together but separable – each segment distinct.”
Letty Cottin Pogrebin
This quote sits well with me, as it’s talking about the way an orange goes together, in segments, just like a family, and that resonates with me.
It’s a different way of looking at orange, isn’t it?
This week Terri has the theme for Sunday Stills as orange, more precisely burnt orange or blood orange, and although I know the various shades are different, to me they’re all one colour – orange!
As you probably already know by now, I am a huge fan of colour and in particular the colour orange – I wear it in clothes, shoes, scarves, earrings, hats, handbags; I drive an orange car; I love the scent of oranges; our new car has orange trim; it just makes me smile in all its forms and it suits me well in all ways!
Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.Source

I have written (ad nauseam some would say) about my love of the colour orange and I won’t bore you with my previous selection of photos, but if perchance you’ve missed my earlier posts here is a bit of a taste –
We don’t associate October with autumn as happens in the Northern Hemisphere with pumpkins and falling leaves. We have spring with new growth, colour and heat on the way and orange is a bright cheerful colour that reflects the change in season.
Are you a fan of orange? Colour means a lot to me and I would say it impacts on me every day.
Thanks for stopping by.
