We don’t get lots of falling leaves in autumn colors here but we do have some lovely orange flowers, even when upside down. 🙂 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.

“Orange 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
