Trailblazing Flora

This nifty little flower grows about two feet from the front of my porch, as if to challenge me.

Fire Flower

"Yeah, that's right. You didn't plant me, or even water me, but I grow here anyway. Wanna do something about it? I don't think you have the cajones, pal!"

The red and yellow coloring reminds me of one of them Fire Flowers from Super Mario Brothers. That's right, even the sight of nature marching onto my turf reminds me of classic Nintendo games. I'm still a geek, regardless of where I live.

A Blanket Flower, identical to those in my south wall flowerbed. Now don't you wish you'd paid attention when i told you the names of all those flowers!?!?

I just read that as "It's a flower." :-)

And I don't care what it's called, it still looks like a Fire flower, or it would if it was a little more glowy.
