  1. oh dawn,
    here you are with your red hot number one haiku! perfect way to begin our haiku fest, with a passionate flora display.
    thanks for being here.

  2. As I’ve told you before, my mom grew these and she called them red hot pokers. You may have transplanted recently, but they are vibrantly thriving–as we are in our various ages and stages. At least, kind of.

  3. I like this…full of vibrant strength. This indeed is a picture of strength and beauty. One of my favorite flowers…must get some for my garden. Mom and Dad always had them in the garden at our house in Colorado. Thank you!!
