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.
another seedling that has been making its way around the garden. this seedling is from Irish Lullaby. as you can see the petals are not skinny… yet. the parent is a mid season plant. it starts blooming as the early season plants finish. and it has a tall well branched scape. with a little luck it will pass that on to its children. two images
can i have that one in red ? some days the answer is yes. a different flower or a different day and the answer could be a firm maybe or a definite no. not every plant wants to cooperate. this is the red sibling to last night’s flower up the row. that might even be the plant at the end of the row. like it was said last night – some plants are put to work and there are lots of seedlings around the garden from those plants. two images…
just a bit more exploration. this is a new seedling. a seedling from a parent that has not been neglected and overlooked. this particular cross is Smoke Scream x Black Plush) x Fol de Rol. a bit of searching will turn up other Fol de Rol seedlings. however this one requires no search. two images..
gardening can be a what if experience. what if these two flowers are brought together ? i wonder if that question is part of the dance those bees do before they leave the hive or fly to the next flower ? three images. the parents Black Plush crossed with Bark at Me. and the results a flower know as Dark Counterpoint.
