Orange Glow

The orange day lilies along the fence in my backyard garden dance and weave in the summer breeze, each blossom emanating an orange glow in a sea of green ribbon leaves.  I've said it before, and I will say it again... I love orange.
Did you know that the colour orange is tied into the history of the violin?  In around 1750 the secret of how Antonio Stradivari make his orange varnish was lost, and to this day nobody knows what he put in it.  There has been lots of speculation... but no winners.
So, you see, orange is famous and some variation of this hue will always be in style.

What do you own that is orange?
