This flower is a real attraction, love the bright orange blooms.
I was driving down the road and I saw it, and I had to go back and photograph it :)
Great pictures you show. Hanne Bente / hbt.finus.dk

This can be a nice garden focal point or centerpiece. I thought it is a desert flower but your area is not, fascinating!
It IS really odd looking for a wet, temperate climate like this...

Oh wow, do you really have hummingbirds in your garden? We do not have these birds overhere... I'm jealous! Love your haiku and the strange but beautiful flower!
There are tons of hummingbirds here. My sister-in-law picked one up that had crashed into a window last summer. It just lay there in her hand for a few minutes...and then it flew away!
'...to the garden feast.' ~ wonderful haiku ~ excellent photos ~thanks, namaste, ^_^
Thanks Carol and ArtMuseDog!
