What beautiful surprises!

My October surprise is that the waterlily colchicum that I planted three weeks ago, thinking that I would have to wait until next year to see them, are now up and in bloom!

I had the same thing happen with my foxglove, and I believe it's the same variety: digitalis ambigua. I love mine; it's come back three years now.
