Searching for Roy G Biv - ORANGE

I can't believe it's a month since my last post for Roy G Biv! This time I searched outside for all things ORANGE and managed to find quite a few. (Here is a link to Julie's blog for more information about the challenge.)

Tiny Hooded Plovers are often seen on our beach and there is a sign on the ramp telling you about them. They have a bright orange surround on their eye and an orange beak.

Some builder's fencing mesh.

I have no idea what this flower is but the bush also has bright blue berries!

Another flower whose identity I do not know! I need to brush up on my gardening!

 The roof on our local phone box which vandals regularly try to destroy! One lot crashed into it with their car, another set fire to it and it is often covered in graffiti! (and bird droppings of course!)

Orange bracelets on the arm of a woman in a lovely print I have on the wall. Not such a good photo because of the reflection from the glass but I like the patterns.

Beach graffiti

Little creatures under the sand were busy bees this morning! Lots and lots of these marks on the beach. Looks like graffiti.


The horse trainers had their trotting buggies deep in the water this morning. I can't imagine the salt water does much for them!

Although it was a beautiful warm morning on the beach there was a rolling fog over the hills. 

Lots more giraffe drawing and painting. I am really enjoying this online class. The other participants are very inspiring. I've dug out my father's water colour paints and have really enjoyed working with them. (My father has been dead for 22 years and only started painting himself a few years before he died. This is the first time I've used his paints.)

And another paper collage, just because they are so much fun to do! The background has been stamped with celery and carrot!
