  2. I did orange, too. Love your choices! Especially the butterfly weed. I'd like to have some of that in my yard, too. I'm trying to start some that look like that but are pink. We'll see if they live or not!

  5. I'm a sucker for any botanical/floral photography...and I think the color orange is so under-rated and unappreciated! Beautiful work!

  12. I am a Denver Bronco fan so go Orange! LOL! I love your photos and the different combinations with the pretty orange. Flowers are brilliant in orange and as always I am enjoying my visits. Enjoy the weekend.

  13. Orange is such a vibrant color...

    I have always loved starting a plant from seed - I'm always overwhelmed with excitement when I see the first bloom on something I grew on my own...

    Outstanding post for the letter "O"!

    Thanks for linking.

    A+
