Richard Of York Gained Battle In Vain or Orange for this weeks summer school

Orange

Well this week I have had a problem . I had said at the start I was going to use only pictures I had taken. I have spent last few weeks looking around me and snapping away.
I don't know about you but orange has been a tough one.
I then came upon the issue of is it Orange or Yellow..

So here we go .

Now this is dubious as it looked orange the rust that is .

marigolds


Any ideas what this is?

This space hopper was much more orange in reality

How amazing to see this orange car and I just happened to have my camera with me.
It did not have grey on it . I just tried to smudge number plate out and made a mistake .

Is it red or orange?
to me as I took it it looked really orange

Saw this piece of fishing equipment in a friends garden

These are in my garden


Now is this yellow or orange I think Orange

Think this is called Lady Hamilton quite appropriate as it is growing in Aj's garden on the Hamilton estate
Last night as I lay in bed thinking I saw my scarf collection and realised there was quite a bit of orange there and looking around I then saw many of my books had orange spines so this morning before work I snapped away
Coming downstairs I then saw these two vases that Liz bought us froma trip ( sorry can't remember where she had been)  And then these pass their best Lillies.



And my final photographic offering is this hand crafted Copper rose dust and all.
The work that went into it ( I actually saw one being made) was amazing the maker would do a bit look back and tweak it .Each peta was individually made.
It reminds me of how God created us.
The craftsman then joined each individual petal together and to be honest it was not until the whole rose was assembled that I saw the true beauty of his creation.
This again reminds me of our world and how individually we can be beautiful but when we are all together we are even more precious .
We are flawed and my rose does not show its true beauty with all the dust and the fact it is tarnished but that is ok It can be restored to its beauty with some TLC .
And we can be complete by trusting God .
