If you are alert while taking photowalks through your neighborhood, you may be able to photograph some colorful and unusual flowers. I took this photograph in Kentlands, our home community within the City of Gaithersburg, Maryland.

What a lovely coral red color!  I don't think I have ever seen that flower.  Or maybe I am just not as alert as you are!

Hi Roy, Very pretty flower and almost as pretty as a yellow one.

That is a beautiful bloom and does it go by a common name that I can identify with?
