  8. I don't think I have ever seen any of these. Are they wild, or cultivated? It is gorgeous! Is it yours? Now I will remember what it is if I should see one.

    1. I think these were cultivated Ginny. I found them at a garden I will be sharing next week so no, they were not mine.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
