It's been raining, sleeting, and hailing for most of the day today. Maybe that's why these flowers caught my eye...their bright colors in the midst of a drab and grey day. Beautiful aren't they. I took a couple of these this morning as I left my house for work, and a few more on my way home during a minor hail storm. The one above I find especially incredible...so red and juicy it almost looks like raw meat. As usual, click any for a larger view.
