Where I live, “spiky” and “flower” are often found side by side. In this case, we’ll just add “orange” for the trifecta. Happy Friday!

    That’s a handsome specimen!

  2. Oh, that bloom looks perfect! I hope you had a lovely week-end and you have a great week! Is it cold there? We have freezing temps, and we had rain and hail this morning. 😮

    • I’m working backwards with comments so I answered this already but that’s find. Not nearly freezing here but beautifully cool this morning and I had the windows open until I left to run errands. Probably could have left them open even longer but it made the inside temperature quite nice!

  3. I love the trifecta of contrasts. Nice composition 😀 I hope it is cooling off some out there now. Today it feels like winter is trying to blow in out here.

    • It was about 55 this morning, warming up at some point to about 85, which is quite nice here. I’m loving the cooler weather! We had a high wind warning last night and today but no wind where we are thankfully.

  4. ooo, past square trifecta! Beautiful!
