Funny how we're naturally drawn to certain colours isn't it? 🤔 I still can't do orange Claudia @clipperty just reminds me too much of the 70s! 🙈 but I also got some yellow coneflowers this year and I must admit they were a lovely, cheery addition 🌼 @daisy-jane 🌼🌼 @susieg @susanhumphrey333

Haha not in the marigold stages of orange just yet Rachel, that 70's Opal Fruit orange - just not me 😆 - but the peachiness side of the colour wheel is creeping in 🍑 (and that's a peach not a bum) 😂 @rachelbrooks xx

Thanks for clarifying...just in case I didn't have my 👓 on! And I wish my bum looked that peachy! 🙊 yes, I am dipping my toe in the peachy pool too - that's all I can handle for now! @clipperty

OMG! I'm such a fibber! I've just remembered that I have Crocosmia and that's definitely orange and I also really love the orange Californian poppies! Well I take it all back...nearly! 😂😂 @clipperty @susanhumphrey333

Haha Rachel, ditto on crocosmia & Californian pops. Rules are made to be broken...and I just love that word - fibber 😆😆 @rachelbrooks @susanhumphrey333

The Early Sunrise looking quite happy against the gnarly old trunk of the Weigela, with the Erigeron behind it...hope that survives as I've had to plant it quite shallowly due to the roots of the Weigela...
