We were in town today so we stopped at the farmer’s market on our way home. What a great surprise! One vendor had this huge bucket of spectacular heliconias for sale. He’s my favorite vendor anyway because he has the best pineapples, but today there was no question of shopping anywhere else.
Wouldn’t you know, I didn’t have my camera with me. It was home charging on my desk and I forgot to put it back in my purse. I broke my own very important rule, and you know that moment when you don’t have your camera, that is when you will see something.
But, I have the flowers! The pink one I recognize as “Sexy Pink” because it is my very favorite. I tried unsuccessfully to grow it in Florida. I’m not sure what the other is but it is also gorgeous. These are the largest heliconias I have ever seen!
What a treat. I love heliconias, and it was a wonderful surprise to find these gorgeous flowers!
