Fritz is a welcome visitor to our garden. He is not always a regular and doesn't stay long, but his popularity is unmatched - if and when he does show up!

Very cute article! What a handsome Dude! Oh, and the flower is nice too! (lol, your husband)

I love your sense of humor. But did you plant the Frit or did it just show up??

I just loved the way you described Fritz. I have tried to grow them, they bloomed the first year and have never come back. I would love to try again, this was one of my mothers favorite flowers.

LOL.. Sure enjoyed your article this morning. They are a fussy flower to be sure, but when they do bloom they are simply gorgeous.

I did plant him LOL! I first saw them in the Rose Garden in Hartford, CT and just had to have them. It is odd how some years they pop up and then the next nothing? Peculiar is just the kind of plant I like.
Thanks for you kind comments.
