I Was Humming A Tune Drinking In Sunshine

Yesterday, I was walking along minding my business when I turned a corner and, flash, bam, alakazam.

An orange-colored view. And, of course, for the remainder of my walk I became obsessed with orange.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN.





FUENGIROLA'S LOGO. IT APPEARS ALL AROUND TOWN.
SUNRISE: FLASH,
BAM,
ALAKAZAM... WENT THE SKY.


Love came and hit me in the eye...

  1. I envy you the orange. Right now our world is pretty much white snow and bare gray branches outside. Inside is one whiny tabby cat and one calm one.

      Our weather has been a bit changeable but of course nothing like yours. Lots of people swimming today and yesterday! We were outside for coffee this morning and had to move out of the soon. Sorry about the cats!

      I had to restrain myself. Do you know how many buildings around here are painted multiple shades of orange?!?

  3. I've been saying this for a while now, but, in my color palette, orange is the new red!

    Y'all thought I was gonna say 'black'! Nope.

  4. Is that a hoya vine in flower? Very impressive, whatever it is. Perfect music for your orange-themed walk. Cheers and all the best for 2016.

      Its Latin name is Pyrostegia venusta. It's also known as Brazilian Flame Vine or Orange Trumpet Creeper. Wishing you the same for 2016.

      Oh, these are bitter oranges used for making marmalade. No fun for eating right off the tree (and I love seeing tourists do it).

  7. Love that song... then again, I'm more than a little fond of Nat King Cole. All the orange is refreshing, like little bursts of laughter for the eyes.

    Happy, Happy New Year to you, San G, Moose and Dudo.

      These orange trees grow bitter oranges for marmalade making. When we lived in Sevilla I used to love to watch the tourists pick them off the trees to sample. I figure they deserved the bitter surprise.
