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

KITCS syndrome

that would be Kid in the candy store.  you might have seen me post ‘find a picture’.   some days are easier than others.  oh that one is nice and that other one will be tomorrow.  except tomorrow the other one is another other one.  or should it be this one ?   was yesterday’s flower red ?  what color should we do today ?  oh no – look that one !   and so it goes.  it is not easy to wander into the candy store each day.   do find a picture.  please.  for today some parents and a seedling.  and the parents are seedlings too…  three images…   the cross is Turn Back Time X Coburg Preview) x (Highland Pinched Fingers x South Seas )    and   seedling x tet Skinwalker right to left.  their seedling is below…

absence

the absence of somethings defines the other.  the absence of light defines dark.  the absence of heat defines cold.  the absence of wet is dry.  the absence of wind defines calm.  other times what we might consider two opposites actually have nothing to do with one another.  the absence of love is not hate.  hate is entirely something else.   and once you begin to really understand love it becomes clear that there is no room for hate.  the absence of flower ?  that would be an empty moment that is to be corrected.  two images…

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…

and

find the picture…. and …  well after the picture it varies.  once the picture is found there is a flower to share.   the simple part of the ‘and’ is not to get in the way of the flower.  or try not to get in the way.  the flower has more to tell, believe it or not.  so what are tonight’s few words ?  they are about a seedling.  most seedlings are what could be called first steps.  rare is the seedling that exceeds both parent plants.  it is the first step of what might be two or more crosses that just might lead to something that will stop you in your tracks.  so while many crosses are pretty they are not that elusive show stopper.  so before the words do get in the way here is a seedling.  a sibling cross that is looking for that next step…  two images and part of the previous step

that other flower

there are only a few…  a hundred or so more other flowers that i am mostly crazy about.  one of those is Golliwog.  there is more to it than the name.  it is a full form and flowing flower.  a flower that hints strongly that maybe all the other flowers in the garden are pretenders…  except just maybe some of those seedlings from this beauty

one more

there is another blooming still that i did not name last night.  i have a steel trap that is a lot like a mind.  just not precisely like one.  and yes rusted.  whether it is rusted shut or open is another matter.  let us get back to the naming.  this one blooms without competition in the front yard.  an oldie called Glittering Gift.  it is a 5 inch 51 cm bloom on a short plant.  it will have several more days bloom.  perhaps you may see why it was named so.  four images

two out of three ?

this is a late blooming seedling.  each seedling is a series of steps forward and backward.  take a couple of late blooming plants.  one that is spidery and another that is a round form – one that reblooms.   put them together and see what happens….  yes the spidery is gone, still the form opened up and flattened out.  time will tell on the rebloom.  oh and this one is pod and pollen fertile.   see those seed pods on the seedling.  the spidery parent is pod stubborn.   very very pod stubborn so far.  like zero !   small steps are progress.   this one is two out of three to the good… parents first, then the seedling.  two images
