Orange - Roy G Biv 2014

This was dessert at a Dim Sum lunch in Hong Kong. The orange bits are some flower suspended in a jelly like substance. The Indian palette likes sugar and all Indians love their syrupy sugar rich sweets, so in comparison this pretty Chinese dessert didn't qualify as dessert, just eye candy I guess.
Oranges. So many different types for sale in a stall in Hong Kong. The Marumi kumquat plant symbolises good luck and it's given as a gift during the Chinese Lunar New Year.

Nastertiums.

Someone's dream house. On the highway from Coimbatore to Bangalore.

Julie and Jennifer will point you to what everybody else has discovered  that's orange.

In 2013 here's what I found looking for Orange.

Mmmm...I especially love the photo of the Chinese "dessert" - & the plate it's on!

It's all eye-candy! That Dim Sum dessert - and its lovely golden plate - is wonderful, and I love the idea of small oranges as good luck symbols - so right for their rich encouraging colour.

Very pretty dessert gelatin. In America: Jello(?) Love the variety of oranges you found in the market. I'd like to taste.

All of these are lovely; it's amazing how many shades of orange oranges come in, isn't it?
