Now it's time to join me for:
I was out taking a short walk with my mom and Coleen this week and we happened upon something that brought back memories from my childhood. One of my Aunts use to grow this plant and I loved them as a kid and was just delighted to have spotted them growing in some one's flower bed near where I live. They were perfect for this prompt.
So what is this plant? It's called, Chinese Lantern Plant and you can read about them by clicking on the link.
Here is my favorite photo and I'll be sharing a couple more as well.

Don't forget to stop by Sarah's blog and check out all the other entries for your "orange" fix.
Also I have a card up on my other blog today that has the color orange in it. You can check it out HERE if you'd like but I'll include a small photo of the card here as well.
Have a fantastic weekend. - I hope to get around to visiting your blogs and commenting as soon as I can.

The Chinese Lantern plants are the coolest! Bummer about losing your post after working so hard on it. I've had that happen too - no fun!ReplyDelete
I love Chinese Lantern plants but I can't buy them...I guess you have to find some growing and gather their seeds. Lovely captures, Ida.ReplyDelete
I have tried and tried to grow these, but never with much success. Funny, because I have seen them escape to the wild and seem to thrive. Beautiful photos!ReplyDelete
They are so beautiful! Never seen them before!ReplyDelete
Ida!!! These photos are absolutely wonderful! I didn't get around to "orange" posts last week...yours is super!ReplyDelete
