Macro Sunday: Orange Flowers at the Smithsonian

Mom and I spent Thursday afternoon walking around a few Smithsonian museums, including the garden near the castle.  These orangeish-pink flowers caught my eye.
I guess I take a lot of pictures of orangish-pink flowers.   
I just made some paper beads that pull in these colors and I didn't even mean to do that!  I'm going to make something with them this week...at least that's the plan.
And, finally, here's a really cool orange flower that's apparently a special exhibit there in the garden...it's from India and I just googled for about five minutes and can't find the name of it.

  5. I would love to visit one of these places. The orange in my garden come from what we call "ditch lilies"--orange day lilies! Nice shots!

  7. Beautiful photos. The contrast of the focused and non-focused flowers looks wonderful. I came across your blog via A Jewelry Accord. Your designs are gorgeous. ~Val
