CANNA LILIES, MARIGOLDS, AND LITTLE KWEI

KWEI IN THE GARDEN

Kwei Quartey as a boy

This snapshot is of me in Ghana as a child. Our home had a well-tended garden, mostly the work of my mother. The broad-leafed plants behind me in the middle background are canna lilies, which are not true lilies. Marigolds, directly next to the cannas, are the bright flowers in background right. On the left side of the picture in the very back, hibiscus.
