Orange and oranger -- it almost hurts my eyes. But the hummingbirds, ants, and butterflies seem to like it.
Here are some of the very orange flowers that are in bloom right now.
Butterfly milkweed, Asclepias tuberosa, a pretty flower that almost seems to glow with its orange-ness.
Candyweed or Yellow Milkwort, Polygala lutea. The brown "bug" hanging on the side of the flower is actually the shed nymphal skin of a dragonfly called a great blue skimmer.
Trumpet-creeper, Campsis radicans, a favorite of ruby-throated hummingbirds. I can always tell when this flower begins to bloom -- all the hummers coming to the feeders have little caps of pollen on the tops of their heads.
Orange Daylily, Hemerocallis fulva, an escape that has become naturalized. It is very common along our roadsides.
