Our first apartment, when my husband and I started our lives together, had the color orange almost everywhere on it and in it. We were just starting out and the apartment was very reasonable for our budget, and so the little white 2 story apartment , with very bright orange trim, became our home.
I am not sure whether the landlord found a great deal on orange paint, or whether his interior decorator wife just loved the color, because the carpet was burnt orange as well.
Yet, it was a happy sweet home for the newlyweds, but I knew in my heart that I would never buy orange paint for anything that we would come upon later.
As the years passed, I found a passion for growing pumpkins..........mostly because of their large beautiful green leaves and the way they stretch over the grounds................then it happened.............
