The lonely lantern...

I was so excited this spring when I got a little package in the mail. My lovely chinese lantern seeds!! Yeah!!!! I read that they are very invasive and will grow like crazy, so I contained them in a stump. The foliage was so pretty this summer and I was thrilled and excited for the Fall to come when I would get to see all the pretty orange flowers.
Well, not so much. At least not this year. I only got one lonely lantern out of the whole group. Isn't is pretty? I love the vibrant orange color.
Next year....lots more lanterns!!!
