Orange you glad it's a new color?

by | |
The colour orange is named after the orange fruit, introduced to Europe via the Sanskrit word nāranja. Before this was introduced to the English-speaking world, the colour was referred to (in Old English) as geoluhread, which translates into Modern English as yellow-red.

Color: Orange (no browns)
Entries per blog: 2
Deadline: September 25, 2009
  1. Write a post on your blog with a picture of your orange flower and link to this announcement in your post.
  2. Your orange flower must be identified using its botanical name or common name. Either will do. Both is terrific! If you need help identifying your flowers, upload a picture to your Flickr account and send it to the group ID Please asking for help.
  3. Paint, sketch, doodle, photograph. The choice is yours.
  4. Please include the Flower Fest logo in your post. You can download it by clicking here. (We also have a .gif with a transparent background, if you would prefer to use that. This does not render well on dark backgrounds.)
  5. Then, drop us an email at flowerfestival [at] gmail [dot] com with the following information:
    • Your name / nickname / blogger handle
    • A permanent link to your post with a picture of the flower
    • Do this before September 25, 2009.
  6. A round-up will be posted within a couple of days after the deadline.
  7. Not a blogger? No worries. Send an email with your picture to flowerfestival[at]gmail[dot]com. Don't forget to include the name of your flower, botanical or common, and we'll include it in the round-up.
Looking forward to your orange entries!

oh! sorry I could not participate this orange-y season, as it was few days since I visited after I left that question as to "if I could still participate?"

But going forward I would keep an eye for the next season.

But yes, really good participation & collection of new flowers which I had never come across till date.
