Orange Flowers

I like these orange flowers but don't know their name. In the sun, they look like the above photo. When it clouded up and got a bit colder, they looked like the photo below.

pretty! The orange ones look like Indian Blanket, but I never remember names to flowers and such! Good thing for books!

the first photo is lovely, it would make for a great greeting card!!!!!

I've seen the flower before and the name is on the tip of my tongue but it won't come to me... :0)

I cannot even tell you the names of flowers in Texas. Birds, flowers and fishes are a world unto themselves.

New Yorkers call them "Indian Paintbrush." Westerners may have a different name for them. They grow everywhere in Upstate NY.

Yup, Mrs. Macomber nailed it. Other common names are orange hawkweed and devil's paintbrush. Hieracium aurantiacum. Lovely pics. They really do it justice.

Indian paint brush is what I called it as a child. Here in Salem we have a bright yellow one.... If we would ever get some sun that is...
Very nice...
