balance

there are all sorts of degrees of simple. and on the other side all sorts of degrees of complex, baroque, and bodacious. if the garden is only one or only the other it can get a bit monotonous. this flower leans towards simple. and in that spirit i will not wander into the degrees…

when it twinkles

and when it glows.  there are 3 or 5 seedlings growing in garden similar to this one.  somewhere in their genetics they have some of Irish Lullaby in their ancestry.  roughly 36 inches 91 cm tall and a 5 inch 12.7 cm bloom.  all similar and all significantly different.  each grain of pollen, so tiny has more potential genetic combinations than all of the stars we might see.  you can keep your wow button handy and be prepared to be stunned when the next generation emerges.  it keeps things from getting boring.  three images…

Irish Lullaby kid

this is a seedling from Irish Lullaby.  it is what is known as a bi-tone.  the sepals are a different shade of color than the petals.  an eye catcher.  three images…

lions

and tigers.  and bears.  oh my.  gardens, flowers, petals, leaves, spent flowers, and seed pods, oh my.

check

it is late and someone needs to find a picture.  it is also late  in winter and it is time for a thaw. so lets try not to think too hard about it.  if it was warmer we could go to the garden and unwind.  since it is winter we will look at pictures and unwind.   tonight we will do the official garden monitor check.  no calibration.  just a monitor check.  one of the flowers is pink.  the other is lavender.   enjoy the flowers and then make a March monitor check somewhere.  even if it is just an imaginary check.   enjoy.  two flowers – one image.  check !

PS – there are extra points awarded if you see pink or lavender snow persons melting in the background.  and do not look too hard unless you are using your imagination…  check !

one more and a lullaby

one last seedling and an Irish Lullaby.  that would be the common parent for the last several days.   there is a very pastel touch of color in Irish Lullaby and perhaps a touch more in the seedling.  three images.  first the seedling and last the parent.

similar

and different again.  another cross with Irish Lullaby.    Irish Lullaby x ((Bark at Me x Black Plush) x Grey Witch) and it goes in different direction.  Still some flow and movement to the petals.  Just a much wider, larger, darker flower.  two images

is pink stronger than red ?

another seedling that has been making its way around the garden.  this seedling is from Irish Lullaby.  as you can see the petals are not skinny… yet.  the parent is a mid season plant.  it starts blooming as the early season plants finish.  and it has a tall well branched scape.  with a little luck it will pass that on to its children.  two images
