Orange Keeps on Giving

Orange is a generous colour, its warm glow gives and gives ~ much appreciated in winter. I chose orange flower photos from a visit I did to Dunedin Botanic Garden on 10 April (autumn) and now I’m enjoying their brightness in winter. New Zealand.

I’ve posted photos of this rose before, it’s a great favourite of mine 🙂

  1. Beautiful images – especially the first of the flowers from the glasshouse. They’re gorgeous and would certainly bring a smile on a winter day.

  2. I love all of these beautiful shades of orange, Liz. I think I have mentioned this before, but I drive a car that is orange, a KIA Soul that is Ignition Orange, so orange is part of my daily life. There is something about bright colors that makes me smile and I love seeing my car in a parking lot, shining brightly in a sea of bland, dull-colored cars. “My” orange is a coppery shade that is not quite as shocking as the orange of the roses in your initial photos.

      1. Thanks, Liz. They only made the Soul in that color for one year, so whenever I spot one on the road, I immediately know that it is a 2011. My car has about 100,000 miles on it (161k km) and is still going strong. My previous car was a Solar Yellow Toyota Matrix that was really bright in color–I am not afraid to stand out in a crowd. 🙂
