What’s not to love about orange? So very vibrant. It’s a safety colour too – gotta admire orange for that. One of my ol’ time favourite books, Tim Winton’s Cloudstreet, has an orange spine. Lots of really yummy foods are orange too… carrots, pumpkins, mandarins and of course oranges! There are many stunning orange flowers too.

This week’s feature orange shot takes a trip down memory lane a few years back to our previous home. It is a photo of my orange haired baby boy in front of the fence that I had painted … you guessed it … orange:

  2. Ha ha ha ... I already knew that you {Kate} didn't like orange so I was hoping you'd be out and busy today!!! I was actually thinking of you when I took the picture of the grated carrot and then as I wrote the sentence I though... mmm... I know one person who won't agree with this!!!

    (And just quietly that is a very impressive stash of Nurofen syringes ... from the orange flavoured range, perchance?)

  11. Hi Sally. Your son is so gorgeous. I would have loved our kids to have had hair like that. Make sure he is always proud of the colour of his hair. They say it is becoming a rarity!
    Have a lovely weekend!
