There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

I have a little shade in the back under the tree where I planted some hostas that took and variegated vinca but I do have an orange encore azala near the patio that kind look like the picture and a lemon yellow azala in full shade and I love day lilies in all colors

There are some orange tiger lilies near the gate to the back yard that do quite well.

I have the orange and yell marigolds near the front door the short ones and out near the front fence I have the tall marigolds. I hope they self seeded themselves and come back this year.

i have a dish plate dailia that is a bronze orange gold color that is quite striking when it blooms the earwig's like to eat them.

hoping you all have sun soon

I think you're thinking of the big daisy type flower, I mean the black eyed susan 'thunbergia alata' which looks a lot like an orange bizzie lizzie...if you 'google' black eyed susan indoor plant you'll see what I mean. They're also good for hanging baskets and patio tubs.

I was going to get some orange bizzie lizzies Ginger but if it's a wet summer they don't last long. I used to have an indoor black eyed susan which is pretty similar...Mmmm! don't know what happened to that!

I have a yellow one and a sort of greenish-pink one but the orange one looked beautiful when I saw it in the gardens at Hovingham Hall. They had some on sale but I couldn't carry it...now, of course, I wish I'd got one as I've never seen them anywhere else!
