winter posts

the general formula for winter posts is to go through the image folders one flower at a time an use them in order. except tonight’s flower has a strong resemblance to last night. oh the tags are different 19-107 vs 19-091. still the images had to be compared and different won out. and for this we are glad. and not that i am counting but others are. it is only about 50 days until spring. and from there it is only a skip and a tumble to mid may when it will be time to look for that first daylily bloom of the summer… oh and do not ever try to count past two when there are garden fairies giggling behind you in the garden. and they always giggle…

redacted ?

could it be the work of just one mischievous garden fairie ? or is there a top secret organization at work here. at the moment te is very little information available on this flower. aside from the obvious that is. that would be it is pretty. red. ruffled. hmm do we really need any more ? please enjoy. just don’t tell. or if you do swear them to secrecy…

possibilities

love it. hate it. do not know what to do with it. and over time these reactions might change. hate it can change to okay. or even to love it. or do not know what to do with it can change to an idea. a direction. a possibility to shape a flower. what way will the possibilities turn ? … sometimes things just need to ferment, to steep, to come into focus…

seedling

pink. or so we think. it is late here. time to turn out the lights. and for tonights set aside pink sights. until later this morning when someone is awake. and the see saw ride between fall and winter continues…

something

something between red and yellow. something that will not be said. something with intriguing shades. even if it does not have long skinny petals…

pollen

most pollen is a golden yellow. sometimes a plant will have white or extremely pale yellow pollen. the general rule of thumb is that white pollen is sterile. it is one of those things that if you are persistent you can try the white pollen and there is a slight chance it will work. slight. however on any other measure this purple flower looks well exciting. so golden pollen from another flower will work just fine. oh and if you look real close there is a little wasp that thinks the white pollen tastes just fine…

Android

not the robot. the flower. it has been growing here in the garden for quite a while. when i started this was one of several flowers picked up as good building blocks. some got used for building. this one a much as i can tell never really got tested. however it is itself from two of my well used favorites Black Plush and Fol de Rol. perhaps it will get used this summer. who can tell which directions the garden fairies and my interests will take ?… oh and if you have the time put Black Plush or Fol de Rol into the search and prepare to get lost and dally with those garden fairies. bring a cuppa or three fingers you just might be a while…

winter

winter came back today. wet snow. stuck on everything. trees. wires. and melting on the pavement. fluffy snowman making snow on top. wet slush on the bottom. the weather looks like it will stay cold for several days. who knows this snow might stay for awhile. could it be winter ? this is a yellow seedling that blooms nice…
