a good answer

the other day i had a flower that was mixed in with other flowers.  today i found another one.  another flower.  it is a small bunch of flowers and they are all pink.  mostly the same shade so the difference was not obvious.  the good thing is the difference in the flowers was noticed.  so come this fall the longer petalled ones will be separated.

hot rainy monday

and the flowers do not care.  today’s flowers will get wet.  and today’s flowers will be gone.  and new flowers will hold the day tomorrow.  they are flowers for but one day.

yes, yes, maybe

flowers everywhere.  not a problem.  there are simply so many that anywhere i look the view is incredible.  a clump of golden Nutmeg Elf x Suzie Cream Cheese is airy and wonderful.  then there is this unusual eye zone.  the color combinations are not typical.  they leave me at a loss for words.  and keep me looking trying to figure out just what is happening.  the other part of the mystery – will this trait be fairly consistent ?  or over time will the plant mature and the flower take on a different look ?

small problems

the pretty flower i want is mixed up with another purple flower.  separating them will take a bit of work and some care.  i will want to wait until the seed pods are ripened and collected.  at that point there will be no flowers to identify one plant from the other.  so they will need to be flagged and removed carefully.  i might even want to keep the other piece until i am sure i have the right plant.  go slow and very careful grasshopper.   and if i am very very lucky i just might get the plant that i want.  what could possibly go wrong ? ! ?
