Flower Friday: Orange Flowers

Fall is here and Halloween is just around the corner so I’m seeing a lot of orange these days – pumpkins, mums, decor and foliage.   And that’s why I decided to do a post on orange flowers.  Most of these flowers don’t have too much to do with this season other than their color.  Like many of my photos, these were all taken here in Santa Barbara, CA.  In my initial Flower Friday post I said the photos would be limited to 5 or 6 but that claim has gone out the window with this post.

Unlike some folks, I love to use the color orange in the garden.  I do use is sparingly because it’s such a strong color.  After all, those warning cones used for construction are the color they are for a reason.  Do you like orange in the garden?
