We don’t get lots of falling leaves in autumn colors here but we do have some lovely orange flowers, even when upside down. πŸ™‚ This beauty is formally known as Caesalpinia pulcherrima , a member of the pea family, and more familiarly as Pride of Barbados, Barbados Flowerfence, Peacock Flower, Mexican Bird of Paradise, Dwarf Flamboyan, Caesalpinia, and Dwarf Poinciana.

β€œOrange strengthens your emotional body, encouraging a general feeling of joy, well-being, and cheerfulness. Orange vibration foods are: oranges, tangerines, apricots, mangoes, peaches and carrots.”
~Tae Yun Kim, The First Element: Secrets to Maximizing Your Energy

Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow. ~Wassily Kandinsky

Life in Colour: orange

    Cool photo and both quotes are interesting Janet! Really artsy – the Kandinsky one made me smile and the Yun Kim one really does seem true about orange and the joy connected
