not a bread tag

just similar.   the little white tag around the base of yesterday’s flower.  the notes tell the cross.  since the picture is not from my garden i will leave the spent flower in place.  it is not mine to remove.  and i know how extremely irritated i would be if someone removed a flower and in the process destroyed the forming seed pod.  that would be truly bad form.  perhaps even worse form than bulldozing the mythical pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.  players get ejected from the playing field for much less reason.  so anyway lets get back to the flower.  a seedling with an interesting eyezone.  three images…  perhaps one day we will see the flowers from those promising seeds forming behind the little white tag.

    This one too is beautiful! I would be irritated too if someone pulled my plant. It’s really comforting to know you get that!

    I wish you were here to help me uproot and replant my Agapanthaus! I know you’d get it and know how to do it right. I’m going to wing it and hope for the best.

      Ah sometimes it is difficult. What i would do at home to clean up a picture just does not work. and the reflex is there wanting to clean up the picture. Glad you enjoy the flowers Dan.

      I am not sure I have the right context, please explain if i drift afield. While I would love to have a similar plant for my garden the reality is the inn is quite happily full. I have enough of my own seedlings to enjoy and work with for crosses. We live on a small city lot. It is a little over sized compared to most of the neighborhood, still small for a hybridizing garden. Though anytime you hybridize ( or collect ) there is always too much to choose from and to keep. I am on a running three year rotation with seedlings. and every year i also buy a handful of new plants. that means some of the old sardines are going to be ejected from the tin to make room. so for example this year i have purchased 7 new plants and kept about 30 plants from the oldest crop of seedlings. give or take. and kept about 10 other plants from those ejected where the 30 seedlings were planted. so every year is a grand game of musical chairs in the garden. and for every plant kept there is another that is not kept. actually more. way more. from the 30 or so seedlings kept there 300 plus that had to go bye bye. Not that yesterday’s flower is not very very pretty – it just has too much competition. And if and when i get one just like it please feel free to say ” Ahha ! “. Times, tastes, and requirements change constantly. And if you are still wondering the lot is 45 feet by 270 feet – or 13.7 m x 80.3 m including the house and garage.

    I find just about any garden fits those qualities. You have described them to a ‘T’. Sounds like a good advertizing line. Enjoy a garden at Nature near you ! Thanks EP !
