This is the first year for this flower in my garden. It was planted over the fall season last year and I am most pleased. All of the bulbs I planted are of these bright colors: red, yellow, orange. Next year I will plant pink and white ones, lots of them.
With these I clip them and place them in a plain glass vase on my kitchen table. Sharing the flower bed are Zinnias, Delphiniums, and Nastursiums. Those are only now starting to bloom. Such a brightly colored spot in the back yard.
