Orange Flowers

 I planted some nice rich orange plants this spring.  Above is Hot Papaya, one of the newer echinaceas.
 A dragonwing begonia in bright orange.
Campion Vesuvius which is redder than the photo shows, but is definitely dark orange.
The gardens are doing well as we have had lots of sunny weather, but not overly hot. Next week is supposed to be in the 30's so that will stress the plants more.
I'm already picking zucchini, celery, lettuce, Swiss chard and I've managed to outfox the chipmunks with regards to a pot of strawberries and will pick a couple later today.
