Thematic Photographic - Orange

Each week Carmi at Written, Inc. has challenged readers with a theme for photographic inspiration. This week the photographic challenge continues with the theme ORANGE.

The Cuties are in the market again!! Each year around this time, boxes appear in our markets with a net bag full of bright orange small fruits with the brand-name Cuties.

They are sweet, seedless, and easy to peel, making them convenient snacks. And they're ORANGE.

Cuties are actually clementines, named for an Algerian priest, Father Clement Rodier, who is said to have discovered them in his garden.

Clementines were introduced into California agriculture in 1914. They're available in our markets all winter long.

I love Cuties!
And I'm so glad I saw your post in my reader -- I hurried over to Carmi's place with my archived orange post

I'm behind again and getting behinder... currently there are 31 of your posts that I haven't read. Ack! I know I am missing out when I don't read each and every one, but it is so daunting to see that number grow...
