O/ Alphabe-Thursday

ORANGE in the garden- blast from the past

OKAY, it's true not all OF these were photographed in my garden as ONE square in this mosaic is a wildflower. Can you guess which ONE?

Moving clockwise starting with the largest square: Great spangled fritillary on a purple coneflower, butterflyweed, orange hawkweed, mountain ash berries, trumpet vine and daylily

Im guessing something called a weed might be the wild one? So nice to see these when we are drowning in snow in my neck of the woods.

Love the butterfly and the cone flower. Perfectly composed!

I'll guess the hawkweed was not from your garden. They are all beautiful and very refreshing compared to the blanket of white outside my window.

Gorgeous (O)ranges.

Oh look! what I found here! Wonderful colors of our earth! So good to see, all the ground is covered by snow right now, so these photos made me happy! So colorful! :)

Beautiful flowers, nice to see in January! I'm guessing the trumpet vine is the wild one:@)

It's so nice to see a blast of colour!

I love the autumn colors...it is my favorite time of year.

A beautiful orange mosaic. A weed in one place can be a domestic plant in another,just like some of our obnoxious weeds getting a high price in some US cities. I think maybe the berries are wild, haha!

Randy said...

What a great preview of whats to come. Have a wonderful day!

These colors are just right on a day where the sun is shining, as it do today :)
Great photos - I think it's the orange hawkweed!!

Those are lovely orange color, and just beautiful photos!

Jacob said...

Very pretty. I dunno from wildflowers but I do know some wild photographers!

Jenny said...

Hawkweed?

Your garden must be amazing with this progression of oranges adding warmth and glow throughout the growing season.

This was an outstanding link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "O".

I enjoyed this splash of happy color today.

Thank you for linking.

A+

You have me stumped! I really should know this, and will probably feel silly when you reveal the "weed."

Sue said...

Gorgeous! I can't pick out the wildflower, though.

=)

VP said...

That's a lot of orange!

myorii said...

How pretty! Seeing these photos make me long for spring soon. It's been too cold this winter!

5thsister said...

Wow is right! These photos are amazing. Thanks for bringing a bit of beauty to my morning!

Cheryl said...

Yes, I just died a little bit looking back at those warm days.

Mountain ash berries. Doubt these are in your garden. Up in a tree on your property?

Kevin Oke Photography said...

Makes me think that spring is just around the corner!

Thanks for livening up my computer.

I was going to go for trumpet vine, but I seem to be outnumbered!
