I was at a friends house whose backyard is packed with flowers of all sorts as well as vegetables of all ilk...6 kinds of tomatoes even...

I call this flower the "Broom Flower"
was told its species name but due to activities in the past, I forgot..
These flowers grow to be quite large, up to 5 inches...in different colors...

Alice in Wonderland might have saw flowers like this...

    I believe it is a Cockscomb...I asked the lady who planted the flower...

    And you know what happened to Allice when she tasted the flower...or was that something else? Very vibrant and unusual.
