Beautiful orange flowers...


No papercrafting here today...just some shots of some lovely orange pigface, or Carpobrotus according to Wikipedia:




They were looking so stunningly bright and splendid down in the garden that I felt compelled to go and take some pics of them.

I can't help but feel sunny looking at these flowers. I hope that your day is a sunny one too!

Sam.

PS. I just wanted to add that these colours are the real deal...they have not been photoshopped, other than a little cropping and addition of watermarks.

Must be because it's the start of spring, I took photos of flowers today too, mine were yellow freesias, the burst of colour makes me feel happy.

Wow - what gorgeous photos Sam. I love orange pigface - it is so vibrant and makes you feel good just looking at it, doesn't it?!
I have a lavender pigface which is just about to flower. One of the best things about pigface is that they grow easily from cuttings and are so hardy - something we need here in Melbourne! I've never watered mine, yet it survived the summer in a very dry garden bed.
Thanks for sharing your photos Sam - I always really enjoy looking at them :-)
