Planter, A Dahlia and A Canna

29 Aug

I was in Penryn today and found this gloriously full planter in my favourite colours, one of the plants being Heliotrope which really lives up to its nickname of Cherry Pie.

Our Dahlias are blooming.

The Canna is in flower too.

Thank you all very much for so many thoughts about the the pink flower yesterday.  I think Heyjude and Arkenatum might have the right id, Crinum.  I hadn’t said that the stems were about 2ft tall and they do look a bit like Amaryllis. I really should have taken a photo of  the whole border.

    Penryn town is bursting with colourful flowers. They looked wonderful on Fair day with the sun and blue sky… 😊

      I was sorry that I couldn’t make that event. I expect it was lots of fun as usual. 🙂

    *Smile* We have Cannas in the garden as well. I can’t post photos as they are finished for the season.

      It seems that many of my favourites come from your part of the world! 🙂
