  1. I like the daylily, such a great shade of orange. wonderful O post.

    have a sweet day.

  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!

  3. The orange flowers are gorgeous, Margaret!
    I love the rain droplets on the lily :)

  4. Beautiful photography for O ~ such vibrant and clear colors and great composition! - carol, ^_^

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

  6. Love the lily! And Butterfly Weed? Those flowers are too pretty to be a weed!!

  7. Love this melange of orange. Really love the Power Surge sculpture. I've always thought public art adds so much to a community.

  8. Gorgeous oranges! Your photos are always so amazing!

  9. I almost used "orange" for my O post. I may for the next round! Gorgeous round up of photos as always. The monarch and the flowers are my favorites. Such rich detail.

  10. Beautiful orange finds! Such a cheerful color!

  11. I love's almost a neutral in my wardrobe I think! I love all your finds, especially the monarch. Nature is magnificent, isn't it?

  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.
