one

one way to remember the seedling bed.  one garden with yellow.  one way to take my breath away.  one moment.  one moment not to be held back.  the two central flowers are siblings.  the cross is Carmine Ibis x Fol de Rol.  one is dark like Carmine Ibis.  one is yellow unlike either parent.  one is named for our granddaughter Vera’s Verse.  and one is waiting for a name.  the last image is the two parent flowers.  and no bloom season has not started yet.  these are from previous summers.  six images…

how to

sneak up on a daylily.  fortunately this is not a wild daylily so some dangers can be dispensed with.  perhaps.  this round nothing went awry.  you don’t simply walk straight up to it particularly if you want to get a good image.  it will flinch and ruin the image.

see it simply ruins the image.  what was i thinking ? ! ?  however if you try a different approach.  and remember to whisper ‘be vewy vewy quiet, i am stalking daylilies’.  sometimes you might get a better image.

curly

point of order

i have occasionally heard complaints about the color yellow and its association with certain beautiful flowers.  as if there could be too many yellow flowers.  heck there is even a flower named ‘Just Another Yellow’.  i am guessing there is a bit of irony involved in that choice.  when the day arrives that too many yellow flowers grace the garden, so much so that their glowing brilliance chases me from the garden, perhaps then i just might consider there is a tad too much yellow.  until then i will choose to live in denial.  that is denial.  not de Nile.  i am strongly allergic to hippos and crocs.  and now to wander gracefully back to yellow… three images  oh and the cross is Carmine Ibis x Fol de Rol

pick another

we now have another granddaughter.  and it would be a very bad thing not to have a flower for her too.  besides she does such a good job of testing the flowers and walking away with pollen on her nose.  this flower has been chosen for her’s.  it is a cross of Carmine Ibis and Fol de Rol.  at the moment it is a little tall for her to test.  though with help i am sure she will be able to get some pollen on her nose.  with a little practice maybe i can learn how to apply pollen to my now.  i hope you enjoy it too.   the flower that is.  or enjoy the both!  and while we are at it… two images.
