next flower

while i might have skipped some flowers as i walked down the rows of Riverbend Garden it was walking the rows.  and this is the next flower.  the eye is a light shade of grey and the edges of the petals are lavender and the center of the petal is a darker shade of purple.  the sepals are a base of cream with traces of the color in the petals.  the overall flower shape is an open star.  a pastel star.  two images…

lavender again ! ? !

yes.  another Irish Lullaby seedling.   this one is a cross with another seedling –  Blue Lustre and Mascara Snake.  this one has full formed round petals.  it is not as skinny as yesterday’s flower.  and it is every bit as pretty.

one half sib

this seedling is also from Irish Lullaby.  however the other parent is different.  this seedling is also from Katy’s Blue.  so it is similar.  and it is different.  two images

not that picture

at least not tonight.  how about this picture ?   the flower is an oldie and one that has been used in crosses here before.  it needs some more experimentation as i am fairly convinced there are other secrets to be revealed.  Blue Lustre is the name.  two images…

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…

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.

lavender sibling

i do try not to repeat too quickly a flower that has recently been shown.  unfortunately that effort involves a steel trap that resembles a mind.  rusted shut.   sometimes there are other ways around this.  and sometimes they even work as intended.   eventually after some thrashing around  a new image is found.  this one is a lighter colored sib of a darker purple seedling.  the cross is 11-014 Olivia’s Opera x SH B110- tet skinwalker.  two images…
