  1. That’s so beautiful! I have seen the turmeric plant and smelled the leaves but never seen the flower..It’s ironical considering how much turmeric is used in India πŸ™‚.

    1. Isn’t it, such a lovely flower. I grew the turmeric because I use quite a bit as well, but the flower was a lovely surprise. thank you.

    1. I hadn’t either, then I read something somewhere and thought I wanted to see if I could get them to grow. Thank you RJ.

  2. Dear Leanne
    beautiful colours. Like all colours they radiate in front of a black background. Well done like always

  3. my Italian grandfather used to grow these lovely flowers, and I’ve never seen the color of the turmeric before. beautiful

    1. I like them as well. My grandfather had a row of them down the side of the house in Orange. They were his babies among some other plants.
      I have been meaning to ask, how is the hothouse? glasshouse?

    2. They are great flowers, I have them in the ground in many places around the house and many in pots. They are all different. I’m still trying to work them out.
      The greenhouse has been going well, I have lots of tomatoes in it, though they haven’t been as big as the ones outside, but I will get there.

    3. Excellent. I’d pass on his growing tips for dahlias but I was probably seven or eight so just liked them πŸ™‚
      Direct sunlight is best. I have some herbs in window boxes but they are just alright. I have too many native animals that enjoy herbs with their meals.

    4. That’s okay, I’m slowly working it out. I have learned they are hungry plants. All my dahlias are in direct light, so all there. Thanks Brian.
