fantasy team

actually no real team. in a pickup game of any sport the neighborhood kids or the internet adults pick the favorite team. build their favorite team. in the garden i do about the same. except it is a real team. mostly. i know the flowers in my garden. i know some of the qualities they might pass. and yes i have to guess at the other ones. so next summer those crosses can be from my real team. the flowers that are here and that i have small clues on what to expect. Bagana is one of those flowers. it does pass on skinny. it passes it on really good. several seedlings in my garden are living proof. there are also several plants that for one reason or another color, branching, bloom season can be rationalized to be a good candidate. or i could always go with a blind hunch. or a cross that makes no sense in anybody’s mind and is merely a let’s see what happens throw it against the wall and see what sticks. or all three and a few more. the garden fairies are good with broken rules. this is Bagana in two or three years when the seeds turn into bloom i might just remember this conversation and have a chance to inspect the results…

      Er vision ? I am not sure I really keep track of it Dan when I am the kid in the candy – er garden store ! I think even I still get overwhelmed by all the flowers. And that would be a good thing.
