Orange

On September 12, Doug and I visited the Leila Aboretum near Battle Creek, Michigan. It was rather late in the season, but there were still lots of beautiful flowers. Today's post will feature some of the flowers of an orange color.

I'm totally inept when it comes to identifying plants, so I won't even try. I can enjoy the beauty without knowing the ID. I hope you can, too.

  6. Those flowers remind me of our zinnias at the arboretum. There are different varieties, apparently. The one above the butterfly looks like a marigold of some type. I love the orange flowers in this post - getting us all ready for Autumn! My favorite season.

  8. Hi Linda! I love those flowers, and I don't care what you call them! I just got back from a walk through the local Arboretum with my friend, and there weren't any flowers like this. Just beautiful!

    Thanks for sharing with all of us today :)

  13. I think you identified them perfectly with "orange." Lovely floral images.

  14. Your images are so vibrant, I can almost smell the flowers! The only ones I recognize, though, are the marigolds and that's only because we have grown them for so many years.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying "hello." It's always nice to meet up with a fellow Hoosier in the blogosphere. :-)
