Between red and yellow lies the colour orange. Now, in the main, I'm not overly fond of this colour - I'd definitely not choose to wear it, accessorize or paint my walls with it, but I love the flamboyant orange-hued tropical flowers I see around me here in Malaysia!
Whilst out walking on Friday, I found a sizzling selection of blooms in this colour range.
How about these? Three stunning Spathodea campanulata blooms from the Flame of the Forest, or African Tulip Tree. I found a mass of these glowing like embers beneath the tree.
This amazing spidery bloom is Gloriosa superba otherwise known as Climbing, or Flame Lily.
And finally a quartet of tropical orange beauties from the archives!
Gorgeous or what?
