My Favorites in the Garden

These red puff balls are my favorite flowers in the garden.  There are 4 this year, one is done blooming already.
These are called blood lillies.  The leaves grow most of the year here, just a very plain pair of leaves.  Then the leaves die back and stalks pop up and burst into these fiery red balls.
And I am so pleased that 2 rather spindly elderberry bushes are blooming this year.  I thought they had died so this is wonderful surprise.  I want to gather some of the berries to try and grow some more.
