Orange Blooms

by greenrabbitdesigns

How stunning are orange flowers.
I’m very pleased to have quite a few varieties of orange plants around the garden.
The beautiful lilies pictured above are one of my favourites.

At dusk orange flowers become even more pretty as they seem to ‘light up’ at that time of day.

I have a variety of marigolds, some have self-seeded from last year and pop up all over the place.

Then there are the lovely ganzias patiently waiting for the sun to unfurl their petals.

I just wonder do we have orange flowers to remind us of what the sun looks like on the days it fails to show up ??
Thank goodness we have them then, as we need that reminder quite often during a British summer! 🙂

Stunning would´ve been my choice too! Just wonderful colors&flowers! I just made an orange felt bag with red bloom the other day as it was just the color for this sun and heat – we have the hottest summer ever!

I wish your weekend will be lovely and sunny!

Yours,
Mia

I hope my weekend is hot and sunny too but the weather forecast says it’s not going to be, unfortunately.
🙁
Just have to keep looking at my orange flowers!
Have a lovely weekend Mia.

Vivienne …. I love to see your very own Garden of Eden, you must enjoy every amazing plant so much and I am sure that’s where some of your inspiration must come from. Thank you for sharing your garden with us :0)

Lovely bright colours, my poor border is turning all green right now, I need more orange, obviously!

It gets like that though doesn’t it. The bed I have my lupins in has got very green now that they have finished and the second blooms are never as good as the first.
