Flamboyance; Canna;

I grew a half size deep red Canna in my garden, beside a yellow. This red with the tiny yellow border is a sport of the two. I think it is brilliant what nature sometimes achieves. At the moment I have  seed growing from a soft salmon coloured  dwarf Canna. Waiting  a while for the result.

Love the simplicity of Asters;

I think my love of Asters comes with my childhood. My mother loved flowers, she had a special flower garden. In summer it was brimming with many coloured Asters. Along the fence grew  tall bushes of this simple Aster. They were visited by a riot of Insects. I still can smell the warm fragrances of her garden. Ts
