They really know how to do big, bright, and Red Orange in Quebec City! I wonder how many plants it takes to fill this planter? If you like gardens, Quebec City is fabulously decked out all year long! Kudos to their gardeners! For more photos of Quebec City, just look HERE!

Red Orange, a Crayola color since 1930, is also known as Mandarine Orange in Mexico, Juicy Orange in the “So Big Set”, and Cajun Crawfish Orange in the color for Louisiana in the “State Crayon Collection.”

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge

Check out some of the other 150+ challenge participants, it’s amazing what we have done with the Crayola colors!

    Wow, that’s a lovely photo. I agree it is red orsnge, although I bet it changes according to the light. When I was at uni, we did an experiment showing people a colour chart, and asked them to point to where blue ended, and when green began. This made me think the same might be true of red orsnge.

      Georgie what did you study at university? What is your background? When I was done with nursing I opened up two fabric shops in DC and had them for ten years. I sewed everyday for YEARS, from making my children’s clothing, moving forward to my specialty, quilting.

        You will have to guess my subject – you’ll probably laugh when you find out and think it inappropriate for me.
        It’s an – ology…..
        I’ve only just started sewing again. My friend does quilts and she encouraged me. I’m not neat enough or accurate enough for quilts. Or any sewing really. I like making little toys and fabric baskets for presents. TWO fabric shops! Wow! I have patchwork envy!

    I never worked when my three children were young as there was no child care but I did do a Psycnology evening class to keep my brain from turning to jelly. I went back to uni as a mature student when youngest was 3 and did BSc Psychology. I then got into teaching A level psychology by accident, and was a college lecturer for over ten years. I did a part-time MSc in Applied Psychology too. Met my second husband at college, he was teaching the evening class! Had an on-off affair with him for 20 years, we both eventually got divorced and married each other, bought a yacht, sailed to Greece, the rest is history…..
