 I thought why not for the next few months, do posts that mostly have my favorite color in them - Orange.  They will be just random photos that I have taken ever since I had a digital camera - so I have a lot to choose from. They will range from nature, houses, my art, wildlife, interiors ...anything that has orange.   Wondering how you all are doing and if fall is showing up yet in your area. And by the way what is your favorite color?  It use to be purple for me, but lately it's orange and coming in second is turquoise.  

(some photos will be some I saved off the internet)

Here are a few

1.  Trees seen on a drive thorugh Twin Peaks on our way to Lake Arrowhead.

2.  A random photo I had saved off of an interior I liked.

3.  A sign a few years back when the high desert caught fire in an area around the 138 hwy. (Not my photo).

 4.  A house I love as we pass it quite often.  The orange door is perfect for it.  In winter on the corner where a tree has grown taller, they decorate with Christmas bulbs.

5.  My old neighborhool down the mountain where we lived in the foothills.  This house was behind ours where a whole new development went in with custom homes - big ones and where we thought we were the last house in the foothills behind us,  houses were built about five years later.  Our realtor told us back in the 80's when we bought our house that this land behind us was national forest area and would never be built on.  lol  The nice thing about it is they put trails back there so I would go walking quite a bit behind the house.  This area also caught fire in the "Old Fire" in 2003 and the fire came right up to our house.  The big houses were saved and as far as i know none were badly damaged.

Anyway, we went from living in foothills to moving up to the mountains.

Love the "orange" photos, especially that charming house.

Happy Wednesday, Sandy.


Buena temática, para unas buenas fotografías. La que me ha gustado menos ver, es la del incendio, siempre es lamentable que se produzca por el gran daño que hace.

I'm loving orange lately too, especially paired with other colors, even purple and the turquoise you mentioned. Teal has been my favorite color since the early 2000s, but blues of any kind are a close second.

I do like that white fireplace against the orange wall but I couldn't live with it.

The orange roof on the last house is lovely.

Blue has been my favourite colour since I was small. It's so soothing even my sewing machine is a turquoise blue which I love & dinner service is Wedgewood Blue Willow.

Enjoyed reading of the favorite colors of you all. Those orange walls, I actually think I could live with it - it feels like it would be energizing...anyway, thanks for the comments.

Orange is always a welcome color because to me it always feels cozy. If I had a house with dark wood and tall ceilings I'd definitely try an orange wall! Thats interesting about the house you lived in, too, I would have thought it if was a national forest nothing would ever be built, too. My favorite color is green, which pairs well with orange, I think! Loved looking at these pics.

This is a fun theme.
I really like the burnt orange of that room. I wonder if I would get tired of it though. It looks quite elegant.
Nothing is really turning color around here yet. I think the drought will definitely have an effect on "Fall" this year.
Today it's suppose to reach 95F. Not very "Fallish" yet!

wow, Sue, you're still with high temps. Hope it cools down soon for you.
Carol...me too...you can't beat fall ...
