The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is “Orange.” I made a review of my gardening photographs and discovered, not a surprise, that I apparently have not had a single orange flower in my garden in twenty years, not one. One could conclude that orange is a color that I don’t care for, and I hope that those of you who do indeed like orange flowers will not be offended. Yet orange is probably one of my very favorite colors in fall. Consequently I am happy to respond to the challenge by offering the following varying shades of orange, all captured in my two North Carolina gardens:
Left: Crape Myrtle ‘Catawba,’ upper right: Stewartia pseudocamellia, lower right: Crape myrtle ‘Osage.
Maybe…just maybe…I may try an orange flower this year. Perhaps an annual in a pot at first. Of course, my Arranger has to give her approval.
