The corn flowers from Michelle's garden have flowered.

Drumanagh gave a piece of these flowers to many people, at our last meeting, to remember Michelle by.

Aren't they just beautiful and such a pure white!

Rachel, you got in a head of me, took a photo early this morning and was going to put it up this evening. Great flower.

Mine is in flower too, I think it is a lovely and appropriate memory of Michelle (Shelser).

Una, it's a division so it is already well hardened. I planted it out pretty much straight away. It is planted in a bed of blue perennial corn flowers and blue bergamot so the white flowers will really stand out.

It is a really classy little flower. I too think that it's a good memento of our friend Michelle.
