  2. I think, it’s more than a shades. 🙂
    I’ve been making a joke “These days, the nature is
    copying the man’s design” —- some garden variety became
    looks too plasticly. (for long shelf-life)

    • No, this one is from another neighbor’s yard. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by gifted gardeners! Do you happen to know what flower this is?

    • Thank you, Scott! They’re in a neighbor’s yard and I was drawn to them the instant I saw them (from quite a distance away, they’re so bright!).

      • You’re welcome…it was like a beacon almost…. I’ve heard that putting Cheetos on the ground beneath a new bird feeder is a way of attracting birds to the location…they’re drawn to the orange-ish color…so I’ve been told. My dogs would eat the Cheetos before the birds would have a chance to notice, so I haven’t experimented with it yet…. 😉

  11. They really are gorgeous! What are they?

    • They are strikingly bright, these flowers. I actually brought down the real saturation before posting for fear that people might think I bumped it up too much! 🙂 I’m not sure what they are, but I’ve asked both blogging friends Audrey and Allen, both expert gardeners, to see if they can identify them. If they can’t, I could always ask my neighbor, but that would mean having to talk to someone in person?!?! 😯 😉

      • I KNOW. The foliage looks like a kind of tulip. I’m grinning here…

        April 2, 2013 at 3:51 pm

        • 🙂 And you’re right! Allen thinks it’s a tulip, too.
