Orange You Glad It's Friday #9

Welcome to week 9 of Orange You Glad It's Friday!

It's raining, it's pouring.... But I'm not complaining! Already our area is perking up. The trees and plants look so happy for the much needed drink. Soon we will be back to our vibrant green, which is one of my favorite parts of living in the Pacific Northwest.

This week's featured photo comes to us from Laura at Shine The Divine. I LOVE the photo she submitted, as well as the rest of the post that accompanied it. The way the light hits this autumn leaf is SO gorgeous. Thanks to everyone for your participation!

Every Friday 12:01am PST, I will open the blog up for posts. Rules are simple. Post a picture that you have taken or piece of art you have created (or have permission to use) with a little or a lot of orange, share your link below, visit others and comment on their orange takes, leave a comment here if you wish.

Each week, I will feature a favorite submission from the previous week with a link to the participants blog.

PLEASE -- Be sure to include an Orange You Glad It's Friday Badge or link back to this blog in your post. To add a badge, just copy and paste the HTML code from below!


I appreciate everyone spreading the word about Orange Friday. I love seeing new participants every week, as well as those that continue to come back to join in! See a great photo on another site that has a little or a lot of orange? Suggest they stop by and submit it here. This is still a young meme and I need your help to get participation :)

You can also get updates and reminders of Orange You Glad It's Friday on Facebook! Speaking of Facebook, even if you do not have a blog, you are welcome to post photos uploaded to Facebook. Just enter the URL of the photo to Linky Tools below to join!

One last photo of dried wildflowers from a hike up on Mt Hood. Things probably look a bit different now since I visited. This was before the rain hit, and the seed pods here have probably been washed away.

Creek Through Dry Grass

The water in this thin creek was actually pretty surprising to see. The other little creeks up around this area have long since dried up.

I love how bold and bright the leaves are on this tree!

Leaves Are Falling

The leaves are officially changing and falling now. The rain started on Friday as predicted and overnight things took a turn and it became autumn.
