Alphabe-Thursday's Rainbow Summer School, Rainbow Orange, August 5, 2010
For some reason, folks seem to be having trouble with the color orange. I looked
through my clothes closet and I have very little in that color though I do love tropical
colors. My wardrobe certainly boasts a lot of cruise clothes in hot pinks, purple and
turquoise but orange is definitelymissing. I love oranges, apricots, and other orange
fruits, mmmm, and especially, mangoes and papayas, those rank at the top and they
are lovely and orange.
Pumpkin, too, is one of the great orange fruits. I can smell pumpkin pie baking in
the oven though Halloween is still far way...and pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies,
pumpkin bread. Just the other day, I had some overripe bananas and made a
wonderful pumpkin banana bread. The aroma had everyone hovering outside the
oven with cries of "Is it done yet?"
So many of the remarkable sunrises and sunsets of my life - and I have been so blessed
to see them from islands and countries all over the globe - have been tinged with hues of orange. They are a heavenly palette that man is hard pressed to duplicate.
I don't have any orange pictures in my files except flowers so I thought I would put those
up for you to see.
