Some Days are Meant to be Orange

Rose Colored enhancement (800x533)
I don’t grow these, though they are beautiful and I wish I did! This was a Mother’s Day bouquet of roses, and every time I see this picture, the flowers long gone, I’m reminded of these beautiful flowers and how important it is to capture the memories and keep them close to our hearts forever.

Okay, okay, so I’m a romance author. What do you expect?

Orange means warmth that chases away the gray days (we have another today), and so I wanted to share another warmly orange picture of a gorgeous Texas sunset.

And that famous shot I took, not that it was famous, but for me, it was, of the supermoon while I was flying home from a conference in Colorado. This is over Texas. Again, whether it’s the moon or the sun, it’s basking in a warm orange glow. Oh, I know, scientists have all kinds of scientific terms for stuff like this, but all I care about is the warm glow. 🙂 It’s a blog about orange, after all.

Some might say this is a red bear, but she really is orange.


And well, yes, the Highlands basking in an orange wolf sort of warmth. Orange is associated with warmth and creativity, sexuality, passion, and harmony.  If you wear a lot of orange, it shows you’re outgoing, busy, bright, courageous. Ironically, not really reading up on what the color meant, I have a character in Deadly Fortunes, who wears bright orange and she’s outgoing, vivacious, and lots of fun.

It’s a matter of a pride…and a matter of pleasure.

Some colors are us. Orange isn’t mine. But I still love it for fall and for Halloween. Orange is a season–a change from hot, hot, hot here in Texas, to cooler weather. So though it’s a warm color, it signals cooler weather.

How do you feel about the color orange?

  1. Love burnt orange and other darker oranges, but I don’t care for the brighter shades. I’m not a fan of bright colors. Good morning Terri! Another grey day here as well.

  2. I love burnt orange also! It’s rich looking. 🙂 Think orange and sunny and that will make the gray day disappear. I like gray days. We have so many hot and sunny ones, gray is a nice change. I get so excited when I see clouds. LOL Still working on Jaguar Pride in the rain. Rainy season there, you know. 🙂 Well, for the time the story is set. 🙂

  3. Just felt like telling you that I love your comments and photos…and, of course, your books! I’m so glad I signed up for your newsletter/blog!


  4. Ah, thanks so much, Janice! You made my day! 🙂 I was having a devil of a time adding the newsletter sign up form to this, so finally figured I’d just add a link and see if that worked. 🙂 Enjoy!
