there once were some seedlings from a cross of Smoke Scream x Diabolique. this could of been one of them. the other one is still here planted up front along the porch. the reason for the cross ? both of them poly occasionally – they throw and extra set of petals. the hope of the cross – that the seedlings from the new cross would poly more often. this is one of those seedlings. time will tell if it polys more often. three images, first one from last growing season (2013), and two more from this year… and no it does not always poly.
These look like Easter flowers- I’m reminded of the ears of stuffed bunnies. Too weird? Hope you’re warm and dry 😉 WG
WG – whether it is triggering memories or triggering other thoughts it is a good thing to look at the flowers and reflect. Not too weird. Warm and dry here and coasting towards spring. You keep warm and dry too. Thanks
Thank you, John. Spring? Remind me again what that feels like? More ice today. I was out in the garden with the camera first thing trying to capture the beauty of sunrise on an ice covered world 😉 Best wishes, WG
Yes – a long slow coast with a ways to go. I forgot to go back outside again today once I was done with my morning errand.
😉 We get a bit of a rest in January, and then back outside and at it by February 😉 All in all, a beautiful month if we can just relax and enjoy it. Best wishes, WG
Love these with the verbena (?)
Val, are you talking about the purple flowers in the background ? Those are yarrow – Achillea. Glad you enjoy them !
yes – thank you John for clarifying 🙂
