A Dr. Seuss Saturday afternoon in the herb garden

What flower is this?  i am remiss
           cannot remember
oh remorse

{edited}  Vicki helped me remember.....it's the red hot poker flower!  Help is fun and help is good and help should never be misunderstood. 

"Today was good.  Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."

"If you never did you should.   These things are fun and fun is good."

"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."      
                            Three of my favorite quotes from  Dr. Seuss


  1. I think I had something like that in my garden in Va Beach. I think we called it a fire poker but I have no idea if that's it's real name.....I paid someone to plant that garden! lol!

  2. Oh, Vicki...you are the greatest. I just googled and it is the red hot poker plant/flower. I was so amused by this plant at the herb garden yesterday. Every stage of its flowering created a totally different Dr. Seuss moment!

  3. I have one of those that volunteered in my garden a couple of years ago -- I'm always amazed to see it grow and flower. --Never knew what to call it, though.


Thanks for stopping by...
