During the past week, it has been raining off and on. This morning, it was raining and when there was a break in the rain, we went to the apple orchard for a tour with our 4-H club.
This beautiful orange flower was in a container garden outside of their little shop.
The level of detail in this one flower amazes me. I look at all the petals and how beautifully they are arranged. The different size petals - from the tiniest ones in the center to largest ones on the outside of the flower - are all a vibrant shade of orange - a welcome color against the gray sky.
It seemed like this was a fitting photo for theme of the 39th week of the Nature Photo of the Week: Details.
