There really is no other point to this post than to say that I really love orange flowers. Dahlias, in particular, always get a lingering look from me. I think it’s the mix of colors, the tonal shifts and the shape of the petals. And my favorite color is purple, not orange. Hard to explain, really.

I’m sure in another life I was a florist or, better yet, a big orange flower. But one that didn’t die in a week, didn’t have thorns or sticky sap, didn’t cause any allergies and was generally nice to have around. {smile}

What kinds of flowers and/or colors do you just love?

    Orange is my favorite color. It is the color of happiness, friendship and comfort. This is how I feel whenever I see it; in a flower, sunset, a vase. It just makes you smile.
