I thought that was Australia, not Canada that there was transportation! lol! Lovely shot though, Lori.

Yes... I love this vine too, Karen. It looks great in planters but I put it in the garden bed this year...It's just a tuber similar to the sweet potatoes you buy at the market but it's not edible. I love the colour..there is also a very bright yellow too!
Tog: LOL! You're showing our age, Tog, my friend! I was just referring to transporting it from the garden into my kitchen, but you couldn't resist, right? I have relatives in Australia but they emigrated. They settled in the Melbourne area in the 1850's.
