one more and a lullaby

one last seedling and an Irish Lullaby.  that would be the common parent for the last several days.   there is a very pastel touch of color in Irish Lullaby and perhaps a touch more in the seedling.  three images.  first the seedling and last the parent.

somethings remembered

or parts of somethings are remembered.  the cross is known – Bark at Me x Autumn Minaret.   it is much shorter than either of its parents, less than half as tall.  it has the yellow and red color of Autumn Minaret and the longer petals of Bark at Me.  And unlike Autumn Minaret the bloom is not so much of a trumpet shape.  now if i could just remember to put it in a spot where it is not so crowded and remember to cross it back to its taller sibling.  two images…

walking

we have now left to seedling bed.  still on the path.  and this is someone else’s lovely.  the flower is called Sky Captain.  you might be able to see the work of  the apprentice pollinator.  the pistil is hiding under a coat of pollen.  there should be some seedlings coming along from this one and more to plant this spring… two images

not complicated

not tonight.  find a flower.  somehow skip the semi mandatory nap.  watch penguins on Nature.  and post a picture.  still on the path.  and even throw in another label.  worry not the labels will hide of their own accord.   two images.   Desert Icicle x Autumn Minaret) x North Wind
Dancer.

could

still i won’t.  this seedling is in the anonymous zone.  nothing in this picture or the pictures near it in the folder will reveal the cross.  the seedling is in the 2012 bed.  and that is about the extent of the available information.  and it is way above the needed information.  in the garden there are no papers or passports needed.  walk from one flower to the next.  look and enjoy.  no hurry.  and no worry.  one image…

foreguessing

or is it forewishing ?  when this cross was made this was not the planned, guessed, or even wished turn.  one parent a lavender and the other a cream colored white.  and so this is the way it went.  fortunately the garden is my favorite location for foreguessing.  three images, the parents and two of the seedling…

and more

is it okay to bringing in the grand parents ?   or is that going to far ?  i will not tell you how far some growers go back tracking parentage.  heck i might even be guilty, so i will not say it too loud.  this is a cross involving Asterisk x Walking the Pattern ( grand parents ) and left to right.  then Irish Lullaby x the seedling from Asterisk and Walking the Pattern.  again left to right.  and finally two images of the resulting seedling from that cross…  and if you get the chance share something with someone.  something nice…

more sibs

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.

de ja Yasmin

add a year or so and look again.  the flower has not really changed.  though the camera has changed.  and so has the imaged changed.  details that were not quite available are now more so available.  back then Yasmin looked like this.  or should i say the camera presented this image ?   now another camera presents this.   should i now say enjoy the subtle essence of Yasmin ?  i hope you do…  three more images…
