Anyways on to the subject of the Gallery - week 77. The subject was colour and I knew I really, really wanted to join in as soon as I read Tara's post. I decided on the colour ORANGE. I am not entirely sure why except that it is youngest daughters favourite colour (when it's not pink!) and I love the shades of orange you get in autumn and the orangey colours of a beautiful sunset. It's a happy colour (bit like youngest daughter really!)
So here goes - some pictures of ORANGE - some are from the last week or so and some are from the more distant past - they have a vaguely garden theme - there are so many beautiful orange colours in nature.
|Orangey red poppies - still flowering in October!|
|Autumnal orange Acer leaves|
|Vivid orange Chinese Lanterns (Physalis)|
|Orangey pink pelargonium flowers|
|Autumnal orange colour at RHS Wisley|
|Orange markings on a 'Red' Admiral butterfly|
|Fantastic orange gypsy caravan at the wonderful Chaumont sur Loire garden festival|
I got so excited that I am now the proud owner of 3 colours - Boo's Orange, Flo's Pink and Rollercoaster Red!
