Summer Colors

This is the time of the year when the 'hot' flowers bloom.

You know the ones, the reds and golds and oranges.

The colors just look "hot" - almost like fireworks and wienie roasts and basking in the sun.

They are very short lived, probably because of heat and dryness -- but very eye popping while they are here.

"Summer afternoon -- summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two beautiful words in the English language." - Henry James


  1. Yes, you're right-I wouldn't have thought of it-but it seems true. Your flowers look so pretty!

  2. I miss the orange day lilies this year, but I'm sure the deer enjoyed their snack. :)

  3. Absolutely glorious, positively shouting against the greens..

  4. Lovely to see when it is cold and very wet here with few flowers. We had about 3 inches of rain over the last couple of days, most over Monday night.

  5. Those are so gorgeously intense. And such a contrast to the blues and whites of my garden!
