Another flower seen in another garden. Should I also add seen in another season ? As yesterday’s pictures showed there is snow on the ground here. So yes it was in another season. This flower is purple and a six inch bloom. The plant is 33 inches high.
The name of this flower is Lavender Panties. So I guess I can file tonight’s post under puns. Should the name or the lack of rhyme disturb you, feel free to substitute boxers, britches, knickers, or purple. What ever will permit you to remember we are in the garden and we have left some of those worldly troubles at the gate. Enjoy.
A week or so past there was a request for an off season garden shot. So we will do a few of those here today. Along with that we will continue with the pictures from other gardens theme. This one is a delicate thing named in honor of a composer and musician. Laura Nyro entrancing on any level that one comes to experience either the flower or the artist.
And now for something a bit more chilling. Some blue light twilight images of the garden. Click on this link for more images of the winter garden. Just bring something along warm…
Still. This one, if you are at all familiar with A Christmas Carol, is I think a bit of a Tiny Tim. A mid size plant 33 inches high with a smaller four inch bloom. It is just a bit uncommon to see a plant of that height with 4 inch bloom. Then again that just might be a part of how this plant got its name. Smudge Mark. I would guess a bit of wry humor was involved. It is a patterned eye daylily. Though the day I captured this image it was in an un-pattern mood. Most patterned daylilies are highly variable. Some days more pattern is shown, some days less. Some days the pattern just looks different from the day before. The weather and the temperature can play a role in what will be displayed. For a better pattern day please look here at CTdaylily.com and you will see what the pattern looks like. And please understand, no matter how lamely I might explain it, that pattern shown or not, at least in my eyes this is a very pretty daylily. And one that brings a bit of variety to the ranks of the garden. Smudge Mark.
The flower is Share a Little. Today we will share some views, from the bud scars left when the flowers fall away. The scars show the phloem that carried nutrients to the bud.
Next a spent flower, dried and desiccated yet not fallen away from the plant.
A view of the petals with a bit of the gold edge. And of the layers of color that make up the give the petal its overall color.
A view of the center with stamens loaded with pollen and more of the texture and depth of layers that compose the petal. And finally a cluster of three blooms. Three blooms to Share a Little of the magic of a summer garden.
not a wine red. a red red this one is. down yoda down. a ruffled edge yes, and still red yes. red red and not one to dread. a red to set the garden on fire. and fortunately it did not burn the camera when i captured this image in another garden. this red is Splendor in the Grass. One picture full flower and another on the edge.
another flower captured in another garden. this one is red, or red purple and it was named for a wine. though I have never seen a yellow ruffle on a glass of wine. could it be the reason for a scientific quest ? is there a Sancho Panza up to this task ? maybe I will just stick to the flowers. besides wine is okay, it is just not my thing. enjoy a glimpse of Merlot. Two pictures, from the whole bloom to the tip of one petal.
