Yellow/Orange Flowers

Garden flowers:

It took me a fair bit of Googling but I believe these are Canna Lilies. Although the flowers look a bit droopy, their bright orange hue caught my eye as I was walking through my neighborhood, and I had to go back for a photo.

The colors here a more subtle but still glorious.  I’m lucky to have neighbors who enjoy tending to roses, and just walking past the colorful blooms brightens my day.

I had to try several times before finally getting some good shots of these flowers; they lie at the base of a cliff that gets heavy sunlight most of the day, and that tends to make accurate photo coloring tough.  If it’s not too sunny, it’s usually too breezy — these beautiful buds do a lot of swaying in the wind!
