  1. It is the most beautiful vibrant colour.

    I am sorry that Geoff passed away, but I’m also pleased that you have something to always remind you of your friendship and those neighbourly times spent together. 🙂

  2. Beautiful flower – that color is so striking. Great job catching the bees/bugs too. Sorry about your friend, I trust he’d be touched that you have the flower and treasure it so.

    1. Thank you Shelley. He let me get a lot of plants from his garden so I will have many memories. I haven’t been to his place since he left as I am not sure if the new owner is a gardener.
