A very pretty variety, and so nicely presented with the applied texturing.

A fine shot Keith.And I hope you sweep up more awards with this broom shot !!
Dunno if you are a fan of Only Fools and Horses ?
I loved it when Trigger said he had the same broom for 20 years,
and he only had 17 new heads and 14 new handles in that time !!

Love it, Keith!
I took a picture of this unusual variety some time ago and have only just edited it. I liked it so much that I bought one recently and it bloomed beautifully....died off now, unfortunately.

Wonderful colour and as you say normally yellow, only colour I've ever seen before. Makes the feral goats drunk as the colour comes out in spring.
