Pretty Orange Posie

The land next to my company used to be a fruit orchard, but recently the owner chopped most of it down and, in the words of the song, "paved paradise and put up a parking lot". My company rented out about half of it and his has been a major advance in convenience of parking at the end of the day. Now we each have our own dedicated designated spots, whereas before it was catch-as-catch-can...bad enough with a car, miserable with a truck.

Anyway, thanks to the land having been owned by a green-thumbed gent the parking lot is bordered with nice shrubs, trees, and flowers. This little beauty was right next to my parking spot. I also have a tree.
