this is someone else’s seedling. they named it Teddy Bears Picnic. some mornings it starts the day like this with a grey purple color. it inherited this from its parent Trahlyta. by the end of the day the front set of petals burn off the grey purple and the whole flower is a dark purple like the sepals in back. it makes for a very pretty flower first thing in the morning. and on a sizzling day like today my brain melts and i forget to take an end of day image. that is when the dark eye becomes a little less prominent… and the whole flower fades to purple.
