Shades of Autumn -- Orange

Lots and lots of orange!  My mom's favorite color was orange--growing up our kitchen was a bright, cheerful orange.  Growing up I never understood the attraction...not with pretty pink around.  But as an adult, I can see it.  So many shades.  Such a happy color with the ability to be dramatic.

At the Zoo:





My church parking lot:


Did you know if you stand in the church parking lot at night with the street light leaves look like fire?

Have a happy Friday!

I love the giraffe, just because he's so cute.

But, wow...the leaves at night....just when I think you couldn't possibly impress me any more than I already am...you do! :)

Hope your friday is wonderful, too!
