The Color Orange {October Challenge Week One}

When I think of The Color Orange, I think of Fall and the glorious colors of the leaves on the trees.  As I sit here sipping tea and typing, I see mostly a sea of green. Small splashes of orange and yellow peek through the towering evergreen trees.  As fall marches on, more and more orange, yellow, and red leaves will appear, but for now, the deciduous trees are still mostly green and blend in well with the evergreens.

That lack of color on the trees isn’t stopping my family from enjoying The Color Orange.  We’ve pulled out the fall decorations box, and my daughter created a new fall wreath for us.  We’ll pull out the Pumpkin Spice scented candle and all the yellow, orange, and red plastic leaves.  We have fall-themed placemats, tablecloths, and napkins, too, with splotches and splashes of orange here and there.

Fall and The Color Orange also brings to mind Pumpkins and all things Pumpkin Spice.  I don’t particularly like pumpkin spice lattes, but I discovered that I do enjoy pumpkin spice bagels and pumpkin scones.  You can have my piece of pumpkin pie, though, and I’ll save room for pumpkin cheesecake. Oddly though, scones and cheesecake are not orange. 

All the talk of food and thinking of The Color Orange and fall reminds me of harvesting, preserving, and canning.  We canned carrots and made peach jam.  Peach jam in a jar looks orange. Not as orange as home canned carrots.  The pluot jam is more of a reddish-orange.  I love that the colors of the homemade jam on the shelf remind me of fall colors. 

What does The Color of Orange make you think of?  Do you think of fall colors or maybe a tall glass of orange juice?  How about orange tabby cats? Orange Sherbet?
