Orange Climax

I will not subject you to ALL the pictures of dirt taken over this last weekend. Amidst balmy breezes and unblemished blue skies we began to turn over the garden. Our dirt is ORANGE (hence so are our white socks now). I have actually never lived in a place with such distinctively hued dirt, and so I am romantically inclined to think about the color BURNT SIENNA--which supposedly comes from the color of the earth around Siena, Italy right? (Or have I been misleading my students all these years.) So might we christen a new color and add it to our palettes.
Orange Climax.

Orange climax it is! Could you spare a little? My little watercolor set is running low on paint.
