The Power of Orange




Isn't it amazing how a little splash of color can be the simple joy that brightens your day? Orange....it stimulates creativity and feelings of joy, and for some it even stimulates the appetite! If orange is your favorite color, you're thought to be sincere and thoughtful. Orange...in nature....is hard to miss, and is a real attention grabber. For the color facts lover, when your orange has equal parts of red and yellow, it conveys feelings of calm and optimism. Lady Luck's color is orange. It's been said that if a change of any kind is needed in life, just burn an orange candle for 7 nights. As for me, what simple joy I find in these bright orange lilies blooming in the hot summer sun. They bring shouts of laughter from little grandchildren as their banana like blooms begin to appear. They bring smiles of appreciation from visitors when their open blooms are cut and placed in a beautiful vase on my diner table. And even their left over deep green stems decorate the foundations of our house for the remainder of summer, resembling the lacy spring ferns that have long wilted by late June. Tonight, as I light my orange candle, I've decided that orange has become my new favorite color. Perhaps there will be some long overdue changes headed my way!

Hi 'B'!!

I am checking the blogroll for Bloggers Over 50 and noticed you'd like to be part of our ever-growing list of members.

First, before I add your blog to our membership, we need to have you add the blogroll to your sidebar. For all the other visitors that drop by your way hopping around from the list ---

Once you've added the javascript to your sidebar, I'll add your blog url. Scroll down on this page and find the script that you can copy and paste.

I'll drop by again sometime this week or so to keep myself updated on the progress of adding to your sidebar.
