Orange Lily

This Orange Lily was one of many at the nature park where I found it. I won't give it to you as a gift because I have read that it is very bad to do so. Look it up. Instead, I will offer the photo as a free wallpaper. We will let this Orange Lily symbolize the end of this year, but also the birth of the next. Have a happy New Year.

I loved the way these flowers looked as they dotted the edges of the roads at the nature park, and I hope they're back again next year. I have read that these flowers originated in Europe, but I have seen them in photos from all over the world. These orange lilies seem to be well loved by most people, and I can understand why. They give a nice, bright, orange glow that makes them stand out wherever they grow. They are about the size of your hand, so they are big enough for their glow to shine brightly.

The Everyday Adventurer is my nature blog where I tell stories of my daily nature hikes and the things I encounter, with more photos like this one. Rat Tales is where I get to share some of the fiction that I write. No photos there though, just some very cool stories.
