Great looking banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Great banner, Margaret. I, too, am wondering what kind of flowers. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

I was also wondering what flower? At first I thought maybe it was Bougainvillea bracts, but not in Canada! Peonies?

My favorite colors! Absolutely beautiful Margaret. I too am wondering what flower this is. Does this mean you have Spring instead of snow nodding

I bet you're right, Rita. Whatever it is is beautiful. I haven't had azaleas in years. They aren't very happy in the southwest, even as houseplants.

Thank you everyone for the great comments on my banner. I tip my hat to you.

It is actually a flower spike that I took a sideways shot to make the banner, I do not know what plant it is as it was here when we bought the house 16 years ago, it is a tough plant to survive here for that long, it is tall, maybe 4 or more feet, tolerates drought and cold, the bees love it.

Thanks Sean. No it isn't lupines, I am very familiar with those, notice the leaves are single, long and narrow on this plant.

Close up of the blooms.

I am wondering if it isn't Purple Loosestrife. From that new closeup picture looks like it could be.
