very flexible

and when they are not very simple they are flexible.  mother nature only pays attention to the rules when she wants too.  the pollen body in the flower is growing out of the middle of the petal.  just say surprise and enjoy.

very simple

no complications.

abc journeys and cycles

these are three sibling seedlings.  at the beginning of the season i was waiting for the start of another summer of bloom.  waiting to experience new flowers.  now the summer is approaching its end.  some flowers are empty stalks.  their bloom is done.  others are announcing that this cannot go on forever.  bloom will end sooner or later.  and i have these three seedlings from this summer.  they are labeled 14-123-A 10-073 Smoke Scream x Cerulean Star) x 12-0619-004 black plush x trahlyta) x Wind Frills sib to Eyed seedling .  14-123-A,  14-123-B, 14-123-C.  and there are seeds to collect.  and next spring seeds to plant.  one is part of the journey.  the other is the start of a new cycle.  in between thinking about journeys and cycles i can think about these seedlings and new seeds.

Alien Stardust

this is a flower that is finally getting enough room.  i tend to plant daylilies too close together.  crowded.  some daylilies come out on the short end of this practice.  and this is not necessarily a fault of the daylily.  it is just a fact.  often the daylily is planted among other established plants.  to put it in other words it is similar to planting a small tree in the middle of a bunch of larger taller established trees.  it is not too much of a surprise that the new tree does not get enough room and enough light to compete.  long story short this flower is finally getting enough light to show its stuff.  this is a 50 inch 127cm  tall daylily with a 9 inch 23cm flower.  and yes it is worth giving this daylily enough room to sparkle in the garden…

surprise… lilies

a few flowers from the garden today.  and surprise some other lilies.  they are called surprise lilies because the leaves grow in the early spring and completely disappear before the bloom.  the blooms seemingly appear from nowhere.  and the tips of these petals fade to blue over the course of the day.
