#AtoZChallenge O – Orange (a celebration of colour)

Orange is a special colour in my household. My daughter’s name, Amber is on the colour wheel between gold and orange (according to Wikipedia) and my son used to have an obsession with the colour. The obsession controlled him and the choices he made, and if he didn’t get the orange cup or plate at nursery all hell would break loose.  Thankfully he’s calmed down a bit now. Now some pictures to celebrate orange.

I’ve taken better Robin shots, but this scruffy fellow is kind of sweet.

The next pictures are not great quality but I was sitting across the river, in the rain. I was so happy to capture the Kingfisher and his/her young. This year I promise myself I’ll get better shots.

The rose smells beautiful, but I’ve no idea what variety it is. The Mexican Orange blossom (Choisya) above will soon be awash with small white flowers that smell gorgeous. It’s a wonderful shrub that flowers at least twice a year.

Orange Vitamin C shake

I really enjoy making things with fresh ingredients. Whether I have grown them myself, or bought them from the shop. This is a little vitamin pick me up drink. It tastes really good drunk straight away.

  2. Chop it up (only used half a carrot)P1160421
  3. Stick it in the blender. And this is the result.P1160425

It’s really good with a bit of ice, but even better with a shot or two of vodka!

  1. Beautiful pics. Currently, orange is my colour of inspiration. While editing, the right words only seem to appear while writing with my orange pen… As for an orange sound: the ear-splitting noise of an orange vuvuzela at any sporting event in South Africa 😉
