Friday Bliss #61 - Splashes of Orange

THANK YOU all for your lovely words and comfort to my complaints about November ❤︎
The lack of daylight in the Nordic winter is dramatic and many people suffer from a fatigue and depression caused by it. I have a daylight lamp too, but it is still in the cupboard
- so my situation is not yet so bad :) But to give the weekend some energy, a few photos
& thoughts about orange. Wikipedia says:

In Europe and America, orange is the colour most associated with extroverts, warmth, fire, 
energy, activity, danger, taste and aroma. 
In Asia it is an important symbolic colour of Buddhism and Hinduism.

The sky takes on shades of orange during sunrise and sunset,
the colour that gives you hope that the sun will set only to rise again.
- Ram Charan

Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow.
- Wassily Kandinsky

There is no blue without yellow and without orange.
- Vincent Van Gogh

On Sunday we celebrate Fathers’ Day, it’s probably time for a strawberry cake!
The poetry book on the left is called SUN. CARROT. WATER. by Heli Laaksonen.
Her poems are written in a western dialect - I come from the east - but did not matter!
I found so much joy of life in Heli’s poems!

Thank you Eva for reminding me about DER BLAUE REITER - The Blue Rider!
Der Blaue Reiter was an art movement lasting from 1911 to 1914, fundamental to Expressionism, along with Die Brücke which was founded in 1905.


Wishing you much light & bright winterdays!

  1. Ja liebe Riita,
    Kandinsky und der Blaue Reiter, überhaupt die Farbe Blau und auch Van Gogh und auch hier freue ich mich auf die Ausstellung in Frankfurt, allerdings erst im Dezember. Da kommt mal wieder alles zusammen.

    Kandinsky mochte die Farbe Blau und Franz Marc Pferde und so kam dann der Blaue Reiter zustande.

    Deine Clivie ist eine Schönheit.

    Mit lieben Grüßen Eva

    1. Good morning Eva,

      I'm already so happy for you, seeing Van Gogh in Frankfurt! And his exhibition is coming to Helsinki next autumn <3 I do remember Franz Marc's Blue Horse and added a link if somebody is interested to read. Wishing you a lovely weekend!

  2. Wow glorious skies, they shine and enchant. I never can get enough when I see such moments. Also I like orange; not really for me in clothing but for decoration like pillows and s.o. I have some of it in my kitchen and I think it goes well with dark wood.

    Great pictures you are showing again, and especially I love your collage, next to the sky pics.

    Wishing you a beautiful day and start into the weekende I am sending greetings over to you.


    1. Thank you so much Nova <3 We need colors now! Happy weekend.

  3. Hi Riitta,
    great skies and wondeful pictures in Orange!
    Wishing you a lovely and cosy weekend!
    Love and hugs, Claudia xo

    1. Thank you my dear Claudia - sun and happy weekend to you, too!

  4. Beautiful sky shots. I love your orange flowers.

  5. Dearest Riitta; Gorgeous pictures of "Splashes of Orange" with wonderful selection♪ I really LOVE to know these words the color represent. "extroverts" is the word which I should try to be p;-)
    Wishing you Happy Father's Day and Sunday and Thank you very much for hosting.
    Sincerely from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

    1. I am more introvert than extrovert, too :) Have a lovely weekend Miyako!

  6. i especially like the last photo, the flower, so pretty, I saw those in Mexico but I forget the name. But I am not seeing the linky!

    1. It is Clivia Sara. InkLinkz has some problems this morning, sometimes the link shows, sometimes not. Hope you'll get it.

  7. Liebe Riitta,
    ich kann mir gut vorstellen, dass es sehr schwierig sein kann, mit der Dunkelheit klar zu kommen. Irgendwann gab es im Fernsehen mal einen Bericht dazu. Die Farbe Orange ist mir in diesem Zusammenhang aber noch nie aufgefallen.
    Die Bilder sind wundervoll.
    Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende.

    Viele liebe Grüße

  8. Heute erzählen meine Blumen auch eine kleine Geschichte wie hier bei dir.
    Bon week-end!

  9. Hello Riitta, nice and coloured post!
    The landscape is total white in Somero today...
    Have a nice weekend!

  10. Dear riitta,
    Orange is a wonderfully warm and positive colour that makes us happy and gives us energy. Your photos and collages are wonderful.
    In the dark season we surround ourselves with a lot of orange and warm vanilla scent - which is also good for the soul - and enjoy our cosy home.
    I wish you a cuddly weekend,
    heartily moni

  11. I love these bright colors!

    I wish I could send you some sunshine.

  12. Dear Riitta,
    so Wonderful all the Colours you show us!
    Have a Lovely evening and

  13. No, nyt räiskyy iloisesti :)

  14. I appreciate your many orange pictures! It is one of my favorite colors. I have a feeling of loss in late September and part of October when the length of the day decreases so quickly, but given that it’s almost always sunny where I live, I eventually become used to the shorter days. I can’t imagine what it must be like where you live. Hopefully November passes quickly enough for you.

  15. Kandinski, an excellent choice! About Van Gogh, few years ago I came across this book about Van Gogh's letters to his brother Theo. A little disappointed with the translation in English, since I could read part of his original letter in Dutch. He is much more of a normal, and warm person than popular opinion has of him. Also very compassionate and giving (he wanted to marry a prostitute, so she would not have to sell her body anymore). His father did not understand him at all and as a pastor threw him out of the church.

  16. ...Riitta, a fabulous post, the art of nature and the art of man!Thanks for hosting, make your weekend special.

  17. Beautiful post. I was just reading that getting outdoors for twenty minutes is helpful, even if the sun is not bright.

  18. El color naranja me gusta, sobre todo los del atardecer. Besos.
