Flowers and Vintage Flickr Group - Orange Flowers



The colour orange is a bit like yellow - some people think it's a difficult colour. I have a friend who won't shop at Sainsbury's because their branding colour is orange!

Orange is such a lovely colour especially in the autumn - a season I love here in London.

I often associate orange with pumpkins, crab apples, chrysanthemums, dahlias, rose hips and autumn leaves.

There are also lots of lovely orange food - oranges, carrots, apricots, mango and sweet potato to name a few.

What I found interesting was that when looking for images with orange flowers the one flower I found the most of was orange ranunculus - a flower that is available in the spring.

There are so many other flowers in lovely orange shades from tulips in the early spring to roses and many different annuals in the summer through to dahlias, crocosmia and sunflowers in the autumn.

I hope you enjoyed some of the orange flowers and was inspired to do some spring arrangements using orange flowers.

Thanks for the visit and see you soon!

Trevlig helg på dig :-)
