  1. The backyard of my childhood house had redhot pokers (though I had no idea what they were at the time) growing as weeds. Your beautiful photos have started me on a re-think of my (under)appreciation of them though! And even I who am the poster child for pastels am lost in admiration of the ‘Bressingham Blaze’ crocosmia. 🙂
