ah a title

perhaps even a catchy one.   or perhaps an anti-title ?   how about we drop that speculation and wander over to the flower.  one that is monikered Android.  fear not nothing mechanical about it.  five images…

each day

each day we begin again,  perhaps it too is part of the fascination with daylilies.  ready or not yesterday’s flower is gone and new ones are blooming today.  is it possible for a flower to be a part of philosophy ?  i have come to think that the flower would be different if it did last for more than one day…  Android

Other vintages

Black Plush is a parent for 43 other daylilies.   Three of them grow here in our garden.  Eggplant Ecstasy, Android, and Dark Counter Point.  Android is new here and I am just beginning to explore some of the possibilities.  There are seeds waiting to be planted from this year’s crosses with Android.  Eggplant Ecstasy has many seedlings growing here.  This is just one of many.10-006 Talon x Eggplant EcstasyDark Counterpoint is a daylily that was grown from seed here in my garden.  It is a cross of Black Plush x Bark At Me.  It is one of those daylilies that does not fade.  It does the opposite.  It usually gets darker over the course of the day.Dark CounterpointWith daylilies the first taste does not take as long as wine.  They can be sampled often during their second year.  And they do improve with age.

Do android daylilies dream of virtual gardens ?

A dedicated punster is never sheepish asking these questions for the shear pleasure of the pun.  Somehow a Norwegian Blue episode seems most appropriate on what is left of this tail.  However the maniacal mechanical daylily and Shakespeare deem that is is not to be.  With all this banter you would never know I really do want to talk about Android.  It is a dark flower, so I guess it will be dark dreams for the dark solstice.  Android is the child of two of my favorite flowers Black Plush and Fol de Rol.   And to continue the dreaming, now I can dream of new crosses with Android.  This Android plant does not look to be the end of the line!DSCF1122
