I’ve made several trips to the Ames Farmers’ Market at North Grand Mall this summer. On my first visit I was struck by the lovely perennials from Red Granite Farm. Maybe some day I’ll get to visit and photograph their flowers in their beds!
I’ve been loving these Cyclone colored lilies around town. I’m not sure if the darker ones really qualify as the color “cardinal”, but I think they are very powerful and attractive, especially paired with the lemony gold!
