Friday "My Town" Shootout--favorite colors!

This week's theme was chosen by Doreen in Michigan--your favorite color!

Mine is purple, as well as nature's orange....

Spring is in the air here in Dublin, California, so here we go!



Some orange occurs natrually, like California's state flower, the Golden Poppy...


And other oranges aren't so naturally occurring!





Spring means birds are out, so here's California's state bird, the California Quail (note the "cowlick" feather on the head!). You can hear these guys with their unique "whistle"...


Lastly... a black-crowned night heron giving me the stink eye...

  1. when I was little, I liked purple. I had a pair of purple shoes will silver heels. I really like them, until my sister said they look hidious. It really ruined it.

    Your purple flowers are so soft.

  2. Beautiful shot. I like the purples too, although, after seeing several shoot-outs, I'm getting really confused.

  5. LOL, on the B&B comments...

    I head straight for yellows reds and especially oranges when I see flowers!

    Birds are just a given- wish I could speak 'tweet'!
