Colors on Monday: Orange



(These pictures can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Jen at Unglazed is hosting a mini meme, Colors on Monday. This week's color is Orange.

Fortunately we have a rose with orange coloring -- Tahitian Sunset. This rose (pictured above) is now blooming for us in our front yard.



We saw orange in the sky last week when we were on our trip to celebrate Betsy's Birthday. This picture was taken as the sun was setting at the Peaks of Otter along the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia.



But no post about the color orange would be complete without a picture of Big Orange's greatest fan. It's almost football time in Tennessee!!!

Good Morning George! Love your choices for orange. The rose is lovely and the sunset was perfect for the birthday girl (who by the way, looks great in her sweat shirt!)

You have broken the norm to include three pictures in one post.

The orange colour must be magical.

Hi George-
Great picks for the color Orange. I notice they all have some Sunshine in them. ;) especially the last one; the sunshine of your life.
Have a great week.

LOVE all the Orange, George!

I'd be hard pressed to find any orange around here, except maybe in the refrigerator!
Glad your roses are blooming so nicely for you. Our rose bushes are huge, but no blooms, yet. The Japanese beetles are the problem, now. It's ALWAYS something.
