      They are stunning flowers and look just like crepe paper.

        My grandma had some of those in her yard but they were pink. I agree they are stunning.

    I love them. They are bright, sassy and Very short lived. I wish they could bloom all season

      For several years, the Masons planted them in front of the Lodge. They haven’t done it in a coupe of years, now.

      Thanks. Point and click with ye olde phone.
