Leslie,
Just lovely,these Alstroemerias grow spontaneously here and are a much awaited mid summer bloom. I wonder why this cultivar is called the third harmonic. First harmonic, the fundamental, second the octave then the third harmonic the fifth....wonder wonder.

Great banner Leslie!

I second that observation, and staying in a musical vein, I'll add that these blooms add a lyrical touch to any garden or bouquet.

Beautiful banner, Leslie! When I first learned about alstroemerias, someone told me a trick for remembering the name: sounds like "I'll still marry ya!" Hilarious!
