It is hard to believe that I once did not care for the color orange. Walking through the garden this August I marvel at how are tastes change over the years, and what a warm, marvelous, diverse color orange is. We sometimes complain about how “blah” the garden is in late summer, but my orange flowers are giving it a lot of punch. These aren’t even all the pictures I took. I was playing with a macro lens and don’t quite have the hang of it yet so many more “orange” flowered plants didn’t make the cut.
Pictured are: Cape Honeysuckle, Gaillardia ‘Oranges and Lemons’, Salvia confertifolia, Cigar Plant, Alstroemeria, Dahlia, and Lantana.
Remember to give most of your plants a nice long deep soak this month.
Enjoy summer and take care, d
