|Joining our parade of orange are the daylilies, of course.|
|Including the old "ditch lilies" that I brought home from my mother's garden long ago.|
|The firecracker fern is heating up and putting out sparkles, getting ready for the Fourth of July.|
|Justicia 'Orange Flame' is beginning to burn as well.|
|The patio table planter holds red-orange wax begonias.|
|And in the wildflower garden, blanketflowers are blooming.|
|The cosmos adds its orange blooms to the mix.|
|By the fence, these old cannas have been in bloom for a while. Soon they'll be sending up new blooms and starting the cycle over again.|
|This crocosmia scape is nearing the end of its bloom.|
|These marigolds reseeded themselves from last year and are happily blooming their little hearts out.|
|Even the insects are orange! Here is a ladybug on my passion vine.|
|There have been a number of orange Monarchs through the garden recently.|
|Of course, there are the orange Gulf Fritillaries.|
|And the Gulf Fritillaries-to-be, also orange, are munching their way to butterfly-hood on the passion vines.|
You can explore the colors of other gardens through links at May Dreams Gardens, our host for this monthly garden party.
Happy Bloom Day!
