it feels like a very bad dream where the things you want most not to happen do happen. how did i and we get here ? how do we wake up ? if you have been here a few times you know i strongly believe in the value of compost. what some people would throw away is the most valuable. compost enriches the garden and brings forth good things. rather than dance around the elephant in the room i will come right out and say it. there are no shit hole countries. i think there are many many many people who along with me did not say the contrary and yet like myself will apologize for this sad unspeakable event. i am sorry. we are sorry. great happenings, great people come from unexpected places. if you do not believe me ask a son of Kenya. i could go on except i will opt to keep things simple. great things do not come from hate. i am very very sorry. i will close with an equally embarrassed flower.
this is a plant that has been a parent to several seedlings. and will be again. skinny and bright orange. search for Bagana and find a few. if not Bagana perhaps one of its seedlings will be crossed with last night’s plant Thorhalla. three images…
yes. another Irish Lullaby seedling. this one is a cross with another seedling – Blue Lustre and Mascara Snake. this one has full formed round petals. it is not as skinny as yesterday’s flower. and it is every bit as pretty.
what is in the garden ? well if you are doing it right – you are. it does not have to be your garden. it just has to be you in a garden. any garden. that includes untended and wild gardens. sometimes you just have to be there. see it and feel it. find it. tonight this is what is to be found in the digital garden. a seedling – Prague Spring x Gift Tie) x Sally Sue. two images..
this is a seedling. one that is doing what i most enjoy seeing. an open star shaped form. petals that are longer and narrow. petals with a bit of a pinch. now the questions comes – given some time to recover from transplant how tall will these flowers grow ? two images..
