Thanks for hosting Heidi, a common theme but not had for some time unfortunately. Just the time for flowers to brighten the days.
I am an orchid person. I have a table full as well as beneath the table in the living room, although at the moment they are thinking about flowering. Here is one that was still flowering.
When I visit the local supermarket I have the habit of taking photos of interesting flowers. I saw this lily.
My mum always called these Red Hot Pokers and we only really saw them in seaside places in England, so I decided I must have one in the garden. It seems the correct name might be Kniphofia.
