Red Hibiscus April 2, 2014.. with perfect hole in the bloom

I just found that 5 of my draft post were created in April.... 

April 5th,2014 Reflections of a bucket

I typed in Google The Color Orange and found a lot of info on this link
a very interesting read on how colors effect our lives

April 5th, 2014 there were 11 orange hibiscus 

The color orange radiates warmth and happiness, combining the physical energy and stimulation of red with the cheerfulness of yellow.

Orange relates to 'gut reaction' or our gut instincts, as opposed to the physical reaction of red or the mental reaction of yellow.

Orange offers emotional strength in difficult times. It helps us to bounce back from disappointments and despair, assisting in recovery from grief.

Cranberry Morning said...

I know that song and now it will be going through my mind all day. Thanks again, Sandra. lol

And about orange, that must be why Baltimore Orioles have such a good attitude. They see the bright orange oranges I put out for them.

Nice hibiscus!

I was listening to NPR a few days ago. It was a program on job interviews and various colors were suggested to wear and what they say about you. One caution: Never wear orange to an interview. My "tube" from the bank came out and I didn't pay attention to why orange was bad. Oh well.

Best,
Bonnie

Good to know about orange, my living room is a weird color, not yellow, not orange, and it cheers me up. Love your bucket art!

I LOVED this post, from beginning to end! Color! You do such a great job..you amaze me with all you can do on your blog! :)
The home I live in was all..bland when I married PH and moved into his home that he and his late wife had shared for 50+ years. Not a flower, not a flower bed. NO color..just some pale blue..otherwise everything was tan or brown..EVERYTHING. The lawn was dead. Color. I have added color and I think he is getting slowly used to it. I love that you use color.

Ummm Sandra? Ah, there's a lion in your backyard...

Betsy Adams said...

I love ORANGE ---all of the different colors of orange, but especially the orange color you chose for your orange typing today... That orange is TENNESSEE Orange, the color of our sports team up here... They say that Tennessee people bleed ORANGE.... ha

Hugs,
Betsy
I got worried about you yesterday when I noticed that you didn't post on my blog (which is fine; not my point here).. But I was afraid that you were sick again. Glad you are not!!!!!

DeniseinVA said...

I never knew all that about the color orange. Beautiful flowers. I could just jump in your swimming pool and play with the lion.

Amy Burzese said...

I used to love that song. I didn't know all of that about orange. Sounds like I need more around me.

Chatty Crone said...

I think I need some orange around me! lol

Such beautiful orange blooms...and I'm not really a fan of orange! :-)

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

I used to know all the words to that song...I do not know why I liked it...color me orange.

George said...

I hope I'll be able to sleep tonight with that song running through my mind. While I'm glad the lion didn't come out of your backyard 'jungle', I did enjoy learning about the color orange.

SquirrelQueen said...

Uh oh, now that song is going to be stuck in my head. Actually I have an upcoming post with that song on Squirrel Eyes. Lion sleeps, cats sleep...... you know the rest.

Love the hibiscus in any color but the orange is striking.

S. Etole said...

Beautiful flower and hoping the song doesn't remain in my head tonight.
