Delightful Orange Flora

Orange is such a positive color.

It reminds me of pumpkins, oranges, and apricots.

It is both a summer and autumn paint.

Creamsicles followed by harvested squash and freshly dug carrots.

Wait – I have orange tulips!  So let’s add spring to orange’s resume.  The deer got at these one year and it took the tulips two years to recover…

Now that I think of it… orange is a winter color, too.  Mandarin oranges in Christmas stockings.  How could I forget?

Orange is looking even better than when I started this silly post.

Orange you glad I’m posting about it?

Besides, I had to figure out a way of including these rather flashy flowers in a blog…

It’s October and it is the first one in a long time that I don’t have a homegrown pumpkin.

Now that you feel sorry for me, you’ll forgive me for that orange pun…

I planted some and they had lovely blossoms.

Next year I will just have to do the bee thing myself!

That’s how I got last year’s…

The bees had a good excuse then, since my pumpkin plant was in the greenhouse.

I won’t give up.  My veins have some feisty Russian blood in them!

Which reminds me – I sure hope the Canadian government continues to guard our sovereignty in the Arctic…

Our national anthem includes:  ” God keep our land glorious and free!”

It’s God that will really do it!

PS – Now I’m in the bad books again.  This time for mixing religion and politics…
