ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK

PREVIOUS / NEXT

NERJA by KRISS on 14 january 2016

For many years I would have associated winter with the color grey, or black or the absence of color.
I used to live in a place with very little snow but cold enough to freeze water in the pipes.
Nature would hold still, dead, for months which was very depressing.
But not this year ! Now for me orange is the new black ! Where we have landed, in Nerja, southern tip of the Spanish peninsula, winter is still colorful with lots of flowers resisting the colder temperatures of the season.
I have to admit that so far, it hasn’t gone below 10°C at night and it jumps beyond 20°C almost every afternoons.

Firstly this is the season of oranges, mandarines, clementines and other lemons, then there are lots of the flower I have in the picture and that I had never seen before in Nerja.
So far I have only spotted them in Calle Carrabeo and in the Parador.
They look gorgeous but don’t smell much.
I saw busy bees around these magnificent bushes and I wonder what their honey tastes like !

Even if the temperature is not tropical and even if I have to wear long sleeves and even feel cold sometimes here, I know it won’t be for long, I know that I always get at least a few hours of good hot sunshine on my skin almost every day and the beautiful orange color is lifting up my spirits and it feels good !

Oh and also I have been hanging on to this green grass photo I shot a few years back intending to post I can’t remember what topic.
So now is the right time to finally get rid of it because I think it will go well with the orange of the bushes !
