Summer's over, and Daisy here feels just as crushed as most people do about that fact.
A bit of rouge never hurt anybody. I'm always impressed by how a colour can instantly change a mood or communicate. To me this one says, "At-ten-tion!".
A symbol of elegance and beauty, calla lily blooms have an interesting construction: simple, sturdy and curvy. These bulbs generally need to be winterized in Canada, although people often report forgetting the bulbs in the ground and finding that the rolled paper-like, trumpet blooms still come up the following season. You'll probably only have success like this if your frosts are mild.
As beautiful as a flower may be, its imperfections like these petals on the verge of dropping are what make particular stems so much more interesting and appealing.
