photo journey 4: rhymes with...
The color that's a fruit. But not unique in that it has no words that rhyme with it in English (Welsh, yes).
The word had a long journey to get to English, but the color is ultimately named for the fruit:
Origin:1300–50; Middle English: the fruit or tree < Old French orenge, cognate with Spanish naranja < Arabic nāranj < Persian nārang < Sanskrit nāraṅga
This color photo journey has a little different design, and is different, too, in that the photos are in the order I took them.
