Black Plush

this one is an oldie. it has red as the base color. a very dark red. so dark that there are just hints of the red hiding in the dark. if you look around you will find Black Plush in a lot of the seedlings. that would include the one that follows it here…

seedling

echo. seedling. echo stops. extra words stop….

often

the reference frequently begins seedling of. tonight it is not a seedling. it is a parent plant. it is a named plant. and it is a soft pink plant. it is Irish Lullaby. it is a midseason plant. one that starts to bloom as the first round of daylilies is starting to fade. it is middling tall at 36 inches 91 cm. and it has a 7 inch 18 cm bloom. perhaps it will tell you why it makes such good seedlings…

hello yellow

this is a sibling to a red/orange seedling. without the red/orange. yellow. lots of yellow. waiting to see it bloom along side of its sibling this summer…

taste if you will. more as in savor the moment. let your eyes drink all of the elements. encompass it all. it is a pastel combination of lavender and yellow in an open star. bold dark and contrasting colors have their place and their moment. so do pastels. savor the vision…

seedling

random seedling. no label. no tag. just a mysterious daylily blooming from last summer. a good daylily for tonight’s picture…

Party Array

is an oldie and a goodie. it is 42 inches 107 cm tall. it was registered at a time when bloom size was not recorded. in my garden it is about 4 inches 10 cm. i like it. i have made some crosses with it. something a little taller and a big skinny flower. Party Array declined the change and came out looking like itself. you will have that stubborn streak sometimes. at least in the first generation. perhaps i will return to it some day. for the moment other things have my divided attention. just enough flowers. just enough distraction…

freckles

it is a thing. broken colors, freckles, splatters, streaks, and stripes. it is a thing that some people are chasing. some freckles here in this garden…
