Lovely! I'm appreciating like it is a picture taken by others! It was the morning sun that day and I had enjoyed that shot! Many thanks for the choice today. I'm sorry to say that the plant no longer grows in my garden. I failed to collect seeds and it did not grow volunteers. I really miss the bright red colour.
