Sparklers

I have a few  new plants this year which remind me of sparklers on the 4th of July. 

My Dad was so protective of my sister and I that we were NEVER allowed to hold a firecracker  or be around anyone else holding a firecracker.  Now that I am older, I totally appreciate his concern. (One year our neighbors set our roof on fire)   But oh, how we wanted to “pop” firecrackers. 

However, we did on occasion get to hold a sparkler.  With Dad right there by our side.   Evidently, they are still a favorite.

This one is a Cleome called Sparkler.

This plant is called Kobold Gayflea but to me, it  looks like a sparkler or firecracker.

And this one is a gomphrena called Fireworks.

  These plants also live up to their lookalikes, because they really take the Heat!   Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July!  I’m going to be enjoying my “Sparklers”.
