Phlowers – Garden Phlowers in Orange & Gold

IMG_2178

This past week I looked out my back window in the early morning light and saw this amazing squash blossom. The flower was almost double the size of my hand. By afternoon it had withered, hopefully leaving behind a new squash. Even though its time to bloom is fleeting, I think it rivals hibiscus and other large, magnificent flowers in beauty.

I’ve included a few other garden phlowers that are blossoming in shades of orange and gold.

Trumpet Vine – I grew this one from seed. It has taken several years to reach blooming size, but it was worth the wait. This vine is attractive to hummingbirds.

Dahlia – The outer edge of the petals are pink, but the inside glows a beautiful coral-orange.
