Orange Oranges

2014-01-12 12.56.30After visiting an organic market, inland from Denia on the Costa Blanca in Spain, I knew the sight of these beautiful, locally grown orange oranges was my inspiration for my blog .Yes it’s that time of year already when we see the most cultivated fruit in the world in abundance and I can’t think of a more refreshing colour to have in our awareness as we enter into the second month of 2014.

 * It is the only colour in the rainbow named after the fruit.

* A fun colour-it says “don’t worry be happy”

 Complementary colours in this stunning kingfisher.

A favorite with painters through the ages, especially Vincent Van Gogh.

* To experience the wonderful essence of orange and the many benefits why not use  ”organic orange oil” in a burner at home”…one of my favorites! ” I like it with cinnamon too  but that’s just sooo last year” !!

just like these boys- blue & orange are best friends

  *Children love  orange –  it’s playful and  gets the creativity (orange) juices flowing. It can also encourage independence and boost the immune system.
* Choose from the many shades and tints of orange like pumpkin,rust,coral peach and apricot to get the orange vibes going or add just a splash in accessories or in a print.
I think it’s a great run up to the big loved up day #Valentines,  just around the corner,after all orange is half red.
