Shades of Orange


Here are some of the items with shades of orange in the garden.


Top view of Moon Cactus.
With barely any care for the last 6 months, this yellow-orange moon cactus still look gorgeous, doesn't it?


Marigold
They are grown in between cabbage plants.
I don't know exactly what the marigold did, but I certainly managed to harvest all my cabbages this time and in good shape too.


Geiger Flower Tree
A row of these trees are grown by the developer in front of my house.
They look good from this direction.
Lots of fallen dried leaves and fruits on the opposite direction.


Canna
These are thriving despite daily rain last month and rainless days this month.


Titty Fruit (Solanum mammosum)
These are not edible but I think they look cute.


Fungi
See the peace symbol?
We use our fingers, the bug uses its antennae.


Orange beetle.
What could it be up to?


Skipper - not a true butterfly nor a moth.
More of this in another post.


Fish
It's purpose is to ensure no mosquito larvae in my lotus pot.
Sometimes I scoop up some of the water and fish waste to add to the compost pile.


My favourite orange items would have to be these 3 dragonflies.
I have yet to see them catch their prey.
So far, I've only seen a spider eating a caterpillar and a praying mantis eating a fly.

  1. Well, you really out did yourself. This post is wonderful. I am not sure which is my favorite, the canna or the dragonflies. The fungi with the little bug (I saw right away) was pretty too. I think the dragonflies win. They are like right out of National Geographic.

  4. Such pretty photos, you are a very talented photographer. I love the fungi, with the cute little bug.

    Have you ever grown peter peppers?

    You grow a lotus in a pot of water? Have you posted about it? I want to do that.

  6. After 2 weeks, I am still waiting for my marigold seeds to germinate and they seem to have lost in space. Your canna looks stunning!

  9. Now, we lost out of serendipity except the last one where we commented next to each other in one of the sites, forgot if its Autumn Belle's or whose! I always say this, one thing i dont forget, your photos are improving everyday, to my envy. Even if the subject is ordinary your photos make them exceptional. Imagine, even Donna of GWGT, who is a good photographer appreciate this!!! That mushroom i see also here during the rainy season, and those dragonflies but i can't take their photos as clear as this. And i haven't made a collage like that one! haha. One of these days, i will.

  10. I love orange in the garden, though I will have to wait at least a month to see marigolds blooming. Extraordinary photographs of the insect life.

  12. Great captures! After years of wanting more and more purple, now we need lots of orange to fo with it! Love esp that mottled canna's bloom.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Loved your photography one especially those solanum fruits and the fungi. I just love capturing fungi and just wait till you see the one I captured last night only I need to id it before I blog it. Those dragon flies are my favourite and they are so hard to photograph. I've got a separate submission to Fabulous Friday this week.

  27. Love, love, love this! Psychiatrists say orange is the color of insanity and if that be true then I'm as crazy as a loon. What fun enjoying these gorgeous shots! :))

  30. You always post about such unusual and interesting things! Titty fruit? I loved the shot of the cactus - it took me awhile to figure out what it was:) I am looking forward to reading a post on skipper.

    ReplyDelete
  31. What a very interesting fungi picture! Loved the little bug, too. And I was trying to recall if I've ever seen an orange dragonfly. Not sure - I'll have to be on the lookout for one!

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is a great collection of oranges. Everything seemed so exotic and beautiful! A few favorites would be the fungi, the dragonflies and the Canna.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I just LOVE you pictures! I can't wait to look at your blog more. This is great. I joined in the FFF this time-my first time this year!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Beautiful photos! So glad I found you!

  35. One, Orange is one of my favorite colors in the garden so I loved your post but the orange insects were the best. Carolyn

  36. I think that you would enjoy researching companion planting: partnering plants that benefit each other, such as planting marigolds in between cabbages to keep nasty insects off of them. We always plant dozens of marigolds in the garden. If you didn't have the little green worms drilled into your cabbages or the little white cabbage butterflies floating above your cabbages, it might be due the marigolds.

    Love the oranges. I like your color theme; amazing what you find when you seek. Here, only daffodils are putting on a show. The fruit trees are about to burst forth in bloom. South of us the flowering trees are beginning their show. So If I were to look for color in the yard it would still be basic brown.

  38. Gorgeous photos! Thanks for the name of the Titti Fruit. Saw the plant growing around my neighbourhood a couple of months ago, the cute tiny bell-liked fruits certainly caught my attention and I always wondered whether can they be eaten!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Your orange has warmed me on this cold April day...love orange in the garden...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Amazing photos of the dragonfly. I'm always amazed when people catch such wonderful close ups of bugs, they tend to fly away as soon as I"m near.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is orange year. Last year red? I thought you did underwater photography with your first shot. P.S. I am linking my newest post to yours.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  52. Nice set of shots!

    Thanks for visiting my Camera Critters post. I'm glad you enjoyed the Dove butt shot because it was clearest. The others weren't as clear because as I explanined I was shooting through a window. Since I wasn't posting on my photoblog I don't mind that the crispness isn't there - only the story. :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Now, that is what I call beauty!

  55. Great photos! I love the fungi with the little bug; I had to look twice! Orange is a great accent color in the garden. After your comment about the cabbages, I will definitely be planting marigolds amongst the vegetables.
