These are beautiful! Orange is emblematic of fall, but I enjoy it all of the time for it's intensity and vibrancy. It provides eye popping contrast for blues and whites and glows like a sunset all on it's own. It's subtler cousins can be as delicate as the palest pink if warmth is desired in a pastel garden.
My favorite is the Nicolas de Largillière, but Georg Albert Dorschfeldt represents what I am trying to accomplish in my own garden.
Thank you Karen!

You're very welcome, Alana - glad you liked them. My garden is a long way from those paintings' inspirations, the back of which is currently buried beneath last night's tree fall. Last night's storm accomplished in a minute what the last 10 years' worth of storms could not. The storm had one color: black, and only for what seemed an instant. Anyhoo, thank you for sharing this venture into an area about which I know very little.
