Orange ~ undoubtedly my "fave"

the colour
the shade
the tone
the smell ~~
the taste : p
All these and more extenuate my love for anything orange!

Most nights we can see a beautiful orange sunset over our garden shed
and the salt marsh.

The reflection of that sunset in the mirror is intensified in the bottom part of the window.

Even the shower curtain is a glow.

The kitchen table stained glass lamp is a very warm orange.

You can see the lamp reflected in the vertical window by the back door,
also, showing you how close we are to the vet's clinic.
I really like the warm tones and shades made by
nature and humans.

Even the fruit on the counter...!
The only thing missing in the 1st pic,
 as if you hadn't notice,
is my orange ball.
Jim took off to see his father
and the orange ball is in the car.
Must talk to him when he gets home.


PS. I wanted to add:

  1. I tend to agree, orange is a very soothing hue! And it's a good color for you! As always, your pictures are beautiful!

  2. Orange is a lovely, warm color. I can see why you like it so much. I hope that Jim comes home soon with your ball.

  3. You are so right,it is the color of sunsets and wonderful fruits and almost the color of my living room walls.--Inger

  4. I love orange and I'm off to check out the blog you recommended right now!

    Love and licks Winnie

  5. That warmed us up just looking at it!

  6. Orange is a lovely color, I love it in the sunrise and the sunset, and the orange light the sun casts on the walls in my living room.

    I was wondering where your orange ball was, 'cause I know that's your most favorite orange thing of all!

  7. These pictures were so soothing... Ahh Orange. How lucky that you live right beside your vet. I loved that first photo of you with the orange. You look a little disappointed though. Like, 'This isn't my ball. I want my ball and Jim took it!' Ahh poor sweet Sophie.

  8. Hi Y'all,

    Some original sunset shots!

    Y'all come by now,

  9. Even your fur is a little orange, Sophie! I love your orange - it's everywhere!

  10. I love orange...and oranges are my favorite fruit

  11. Orange you glad your ball is orange?

  12. Oh wow! I really love all the orange in this post! I'm feeling a little hungry now, though!

    We have been happy with our move, but it takes a bit of playing around to get the hang of Wordpress. If you want to do it, give yourself time to tinker around with it, and if your photos tend to be as big as ours, plan on using a photo hosting site! BOL!


  13. At the end of my day, the color orange is warm and so relaxing!

  14. Oh Sophie
    I love the color orange too. And my frined Melissa( the mommmy of Emmitt) she love everything orange,, and I am sending her orange wishes from your blog to touch her tonight.. Maybe the color orange can heal.. I think it can.
