I love all shades of yellow and orange but trying to find the color apricot for this week’s Sunday Stills has been daunting.
“Warm yellowish-orangish hue.” Well, I guess that nails it down! 😉
Here’s Benji willing the closet door to open so he can jump inside and hide a while.
But is he surrounded by shades of apricot?
Peach I know because according to Fire King the glassware in my kitchen is called Peach Lustre. Depending on the lighting they look a bit like apricot.
But the best shades of yellow and orange are found in nature, and it won’t be long until they dominate the landscape. These trees down the street dress up nicely for fall.
And I can’t wait to visit Coulon Park next month when the maples will be ablaze in shades of yellow and orange and peach.
I’m pretty sure apricot is in there somewhere.
And that will have to do.

That all worked for me, Susanne. You nailed that challenge! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete! Glad to hear it! 🙂 🙂

Such striking colors, Susanne! I certainly see lots of apricot hues in these images. Soon Fall will arrive in both our areas any day!
Thanks so much! Looking forward to the beautiful colors of fall! 🙂
What you might find in “apricot” are some mere hints of pink or peach. A very faint suggestion of a blush, perhaps. But your photos come closest to the ideal, Susanne. I recently walked around a friend’s flower farm (Oregon, Willamette Valley) and there might actually be some dahlias that have that slightly blushing apricot undertone. But you know what? There are actually quite a few varieties of apricots and each and every one is differently blessed by nature. At any rate – autumn in the PNW is – speaking of color! – an “embarrassment of riches”! And you captured those colors beautifully as always.
Thanks so much! I had a hard time trying to figure out what qualified as apricot! I have many similar colors in my home, but you can’t beat the ones in nature. 🙂
To me peach has a tinge of pink and apricot is more orange – at least the ripe fruit! I think you are surrounded by apricot. The photos of the fall colors are out of this world!
Aw thank you so much for your comment! I don’t care much for eating fresh apricots, but they certainly are pretty to look at! And I can’t wait for the explosion of fall colors coming next month. 🙂
You live in a pretty part of the world. Thanks for sharing
Thank you so much. I love the Pacific Northwest! 🙂
Very beautiful colors, Susanne! Benji is so cute. 😻
Thank you. Benji is a character! 🙂
What beautiful photos, Suzanne. The first is a real gem and it looks like Benji knows it.
Thanks so much! Benji is so funny when he wants into the closet. Sometimes he’ll sit on the landing and sing! 🙂
Beautiful photos all…and there’s no doubt at all…apricot is in your leaves of Fall!🍂
Thanks. I was trying hard to find apricot and figured it was in those fall colors somewhere! 🙂
Beautiful photos. I hope Benji got his way, although I don’t allow cats in the closet anymore. They used to hide in there until I found dried vomit and someone used some of my dresses and skirts as a scratching mat.
Thanks! 🙂 No, I don’t like him in the closet, but he seems to think staring at the door will change my mind! Sometimes I accidentally leave it open and find him there later. 😉
It’s not an easy colour to pin down but I reckon you’ve found plenty of apricot here!
Thank you! It was hiding everywhere in plain sight! 😊
All the pictures qualified as apricot to me. 😀And cats hiding in closets? Happens around here regularly!
Good to know I found some apricot! And Benji loves to find dark, enclosed spots for a catnap, any closet will do! 🙂
