No can find

Planting time! We hit several nurseries and the big box stores. I am looking for mainstays – begonia, marigold, and impatiens. And then there are the odd things like cape jewel. I had it/found it last year. Nope! Not this year! Emma has an app to identify flowers. Easy. I got a name. No flower. The nursery was very kind. They could not identify the flower from my description – a red flower with tongue sticking out like the Rolling Stones. Oh yeah! They smiled at me indulgently unable to help. I shall make do. Color is what we are after anyway. Photo ops are later. What came first? The flower or the photo?
