Love your drawings, Beth!

I have this in our garden, a favourite of mine and much loved by the hummingbirds. There is also a much shorter (and rather invasive) orange one that came with this garden.


So •that's• what they are! Your drawings capture the dancing delicacy. Yes, he does have an exceptional stand.

That's Lucifer! I wrote a blog posting about it (Lucifer and Friends) last year. The colour is amazingly vibrant, and, as you say, the structure is wonderful too.

Your drawing really captures the beauty of the flowers.
I like to dedicate few lines from my poem

I would call you a liar if you say vanity’s not your sin
Is beauty a matter of opinion or observation?
What lies in the eyes of the beholder?
An illusion, conviction or perhaps just a momentary fascination

please read the full poem and share your opinion


Lovely. I'm going crazy over the flower gardens on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia.

I brought out Firecracker bulbs from UK when we first moved out to Turkey in 2004 but sadly they died after a couple of years, no doubt the summer heat was too much. However, the orange flowered common form of crocosmia continues to thrive and make me happy. And the heat would seem to be preventing its invasive tendencies.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
