Healthy & Hot
Warms me up when I am not
Outrageous Orange

This is a macro shot (taken with Sony Cybershot 4.1 on macro daylight setting) of a plant in my neighbour’s garden. Around here they are known as Hot Pokers. I thought you might enjoy these colourful flowers and their more than 50 petals.
It was a nice Australian sunny day which showed the blooms off to there best advantage.

I am so greatful to RB for featuring this image on the home page December 2009.
