Sunday Stills: #Orange You Glad?

Great pumpkins

Yes, I know it’s a silly blog title, but aren’t you? Glad, I mean, now that with Halloween almost upon us the holiday season is officially here?

I’m not sure if I’m particularly glad about the hustle and bustle with shopping and more traffic, but I’m very much looking forward to the road trips to visit family.

Whatever your feelings about the holiday season, I love the color orange because it seems like such a happy color!

According to an online source:
“Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

Although I personally don’t wear bright orange because my redhead complexion couldn’t take it, I do wear muted shades of orange like peach, salmon, and rust.

Fellow blogger and over-50 fashion guru Jodie shares her ideas on orange as a fashion statement.

I naturally have surrounded myself with the color orange. My home has two pumpkin-colored accent walls in the kitchen and dining room. My updated white brick fireplace now sports some Autumn decor on the mantle.

When we got married 5 years ago, I chose a non-traditional wedding ring that boasts an orange sapphire!

Does the color orange make you happy? Here are a few more of mine to get you started:

An end of summer delta sunset from September. Everything was orange!

Of course, a post with the theme of orange would be incomplete without some Fall colors.

Autumn leaves and palm

I call this “California Autumn” because of the juxtaposition of fall leaves against the back drop of a palm tree.

  1. When I think of orange, I think of something to eat or drink, or the nursery rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons.’ Such a horrid nursey rhyme given its subject but it is Halloween), but the winter orange sunsets and sunrises we get are very special. I hope the Autumn chill has finally reached your part of the world, Terri.

    1. I’ll have to look up that rhyme, Hugh! Cooler temps at night (44-50 degrees) with still warm days at 78-80 degrees, sorry no Celsius calculator! Once that time changes from so-called daylight savings time (still not sure what we’re saving this time of year, but it’s on the election ballot in California), it will feel much colder when the sun sets at 5:30pm :/

      1. We saved our extra hour last weekend, Terri. I still felt like I had jetlag the following day. The dogs had no idea what was going on. They were still up for their walk at the usual time, especially because the mornings have become lighter because of the time change.
        Enjoy your extra hour on the weekend.

  2. I just love that definition of the colour orange – it’s awesome! I enjoyed seeing your photos and my post has a range of orange shots too. We don’t really do the whole Halloween thing here but I love your pumpkin shots. And your ring is gorgeous! Thanks again for the challenge!

  3. Orange is certainly a color full of energy! I love bright colors. I didn’t think of all the orange around us, not even the sunset, until I saw your post.

  4. I didn’t used to care for orange (I still don’t for anything I’d wear) but now I think of it as a joyful color and the perfect contrast for blues and purples. I love that we see so much of it this time of year – in nature and in decorations. Your ring is lovely!

  5. I love orange – it’s such a vibrant color, full of action and warmth. I also have several walls in an orange tone, maybe a bit more like paprika. And that wedding ring – now that is sensational! An orange sapphire is quite an original.

    Orange you glad you posted all these fun images today? (Sorry, the pun begged to be let out of its cage.)
