Orange Vibes

After showing it's rather pleasant, sunnyish midmorning side the weather said, enough of this - and since then the rain has either been pouring down, drizzling or just slowly dripping. Sure it makes everything looks fresh, lush and green, but to fight the grey, cloudy skies I for one need *a bit* more colour. So I thought I'd share some orange to bright up the day.

Not orange as in fruit orange, but as in colour. It's a colour that's quite obviously not pink, but pretty darn close. It's a gorgeous, perky, feel-good-vibey colour. The colour of one of, if not The, favourite handbag, darlin' Elvira. Who travelled with me all the way to the other side of the world and back - to a country that I found, to my delight, celebrated the colour orange everywhere, South Africa.

Orange is also the colour of my favourite vegetable, carrot, which comes in many shapes, like in infamous carrot cap shape or cute dangling earrings shape. Anyone for a carrot or two?

It also comes in cute as a button William Wallace shape. The once wee one has grown up to a handsome boy of 9 months, latest news is he's doing well at cat-shows, always the last thing seen when going to sleep and the first thing seen when waking up, constantly purring - in other words a furry orange gem.

Yes, for many reasons, orange rules, in a whole lot of ways, shapes, sizes and forms

Yes, orange is indeed a fantastic colour. Is there anything cuter then the little model in his carrot cap or the tiny scrap of marmalade kitten. I do like the lovely orange bag! Great photos and great blog. I have somewhere a post "Orange makes the garden glow!" Have a nice day.
