"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

Colours - Orange

My friend Britt-Arnild once did a post on *Colours*.....it was fun to play along, so I thought I would do a post from time-to-time concentrating on just one colour. A precursor to Winter's soft colours.....on a walk last week, I photographed all things Orange...

 These mushrooms were actually quite ORANGE....  (guess they should not be eaten)!

Last.....but certainly not least.......Mr. Orange!

I'm off to Santa Rosa to spend a few days with my friend Joyce and the wonderful Mimi!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Orange to me is always uplifting and full of surprise!

  2. you found a lot of orange. i can think of only one on my walk, fungus or mushrooms.

    have a great time away. have fun and laughs and lots of talking.

  3. I hope your weekend is a good one, Robin.

  4. Its amazing the colors you find if you look and right now Orange is very prevalent out our front window. :)Have a fun visit.

  5. That's a lovely autumnal collection of the orange in nature.

  6. It is so fun to take one color and look for it everywhere and see all the great results. Maybe I need to try it.
    Fun post Robin.

  7. Orange has always been my favourite colour. It is a colour and an object which to my 3 year old mind was an amazing thing ... not so much to my 48 year old mind but there is still an echo of that amazement even so.

    I had to get my glasses to double check because it looked at first glance like that pumpkin was in free fall!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend Robin. Warmest hugs xx Jos

  8. oooh so prettu- and I do love orange- always cheers me up. Have a great weekend and lotsa fun!

  9. What could be more perfect here than Mr. Orange?!
    The other pictures are great as well.
    We enjoyed our last evening here. Tomorrow we will do the botanical garden and will fly home in the evening . We had a great time.

  10. Mr. Orange is a wonderful boy!
    Lots of orange out our windows now too.
    Interesting, this single color view of things.

    Have a super time with your friends!

  11. have fun Robin dear..love the orange and what a great idea to look for colors in nature. Opens your eyes right?

  12. Oooooo, I love that orange pumpkin! What a beauty.....but of course Mr. Orange trumps them all. ;-)


  13. Oh Santa Rosa with friends! what could be more lovely in a winter weekend? Enjoy it darling and come visit soon. Orange is one of my favorite colors too, the warmth of the red and the sunny disposition of the yellow, actually this winter I am wearing more orange than ever before and not because of the fashion push. It is because I am learning to fight grey with orange!

  14. a wonderful post full of orange-y goodness! of course monsieur le chat is the most gorgeous of all the oranges!!


  15. Robin, I need your email address rather than your mailing address, Sweetie. I'm so sorry I didn't make that clear in my comment on Nollyposh's blog when I offered to send the Order of Service. What I have is a forwarded copy rather than a hard copy. I can print it out and send you a hard copy if that's what you prefer.

  16. Whoa where have I been?!

    Orange you clever to choose this theme and color. To me you've constructed the threshold to winter!
