I love the green and orange together. I adore the shape of that old ashtray. And the dreamy echo of orange on the bottom right is a great touch.

Oh and I love the melty feeling of the design on the ashtray. What a great use for that old ashtray!

I should point out that I misspelled the cultivar name in the caption Grumbling . That should be 'Ogon'. I'd edit it to correct it, but I think the time for that has passed now. For some reason I always have a tendency to spell it like 'shogun'. Maybe because I have another cultivar with that name in an entirely different genera.
