An Ode to Orange

When else can we display orange at it's finest if not in Fall?  By definition Orange means the color of autumn, well doesn't it.  What other time of the year does orange become a focal point or a weekly theme or a favorite centerpiece or the color of leaves on trees or the hues in a new fall scarf or hat or the color of pies, when else I ask you?  So here is my ode to orange to celebrate that glorious fall color........

Orange cars....not particularly my favorite color for a car, but it sure is easy to spot.

This colorful lady was one of the street vendors in Santa Fe, NM - loved that hat and glasses....

That fall scarf I mentioned earlier....

Those silly salt & pepper shakers that only come out once a year.....

A few colorful flowers still around....not much longer I fear.

Look at that leaf, where else can you get such uncontested beauty??

And what other time of the year does orange candy fill the candy dishes waiting for a nibble here a nibble there.....

There is beauty in those pumpkin stems, some call it stem envy.

And the ever so popular pumpkin pie cheesecake.....oh yum!!

Orange these beautiful flowers in fall & spring.  The perfect cool weather flower.  Sharing with......

And finally, my sweets, an orange rose, so delicate with an added Kim Klassen texture.

There are many, many, many more oranges, what can you add to the mix??

Until next time.......


  1. Deanna, something about orange just makes me feel good, as did everything about your post. Pumpkin, candy corn, leaves and flowers, all beautifully shot.
    Hope you have a good weekend.

    Connie : )

  2. Oh my, another beautiful tour. That orange car is an excellent find! your pies and candies are mouth-watering!

  3. Oh my, what a wonderful collection of orange-colored photos. My favorite is the one of the leaves.

  4. I love the little salt and pepper shakers. Great post.

  5. A fabulous orange post - fabulous shots, especially the last one, so pretty!
    Greetings from Italy.

  6. Wonderful shots for orange! At least you'd be able to spot an orange car easily in the parking lot, I used to have a white car and I was always losing it :)

    Also, that cheesecake looks divine!
