Zentedeschia aethiopica

                   Cool and sleek and so romantic ,this jewel of the botanical world .

                 This grows SO easily here in Cornwall ......everyone should have it !

 Even the tiniest piece of root will soon grow away  . It prefers a moist soil ....but I have it in a fairly dry area too and it is just fine  .
 It will collapse into a heap and go dormant through cold snaps ..but then revive as soon as the weather becomes mild again .

It,s my birthday ! I can do what I like !

....So I went for a nice long walk down to Polurrian Cove ....where I created a Labryinth ,climbed up a cliff and sat surrounded by beautiful flowers and watched a PeregrineFalcon hovering overhead .
