compare

measure.  plan.  observe.  watch.  measure frequently.  photograph.  this flower is this flower under a different light and on a different day.  did i see what i thought i saw ?   or did i see what i hoped to see ?  is it really at the level i hoped to see it ?  did the quality of the light in the darker picture over emphasizing some of the colors and the pattern of coloration ?  perhaps.  could a similar coloration be achieved in brighter lighting ?  perhaps.  are there crosses that could be made to reinforce that trait ?  perhaps.  simply repeat the chant that opened this post.  three images and a dark link…  and as said on another dark night – there is no room for hate.

these two

this seedling is a cross of Volcan Fuego and a seedling produced by Talon and Smoke Scream.  both have good branching structure.  and this trait is inherited by  this seedling.  the yellow flower is small much like the flowers of Volcan Fuego.  except for one trait.  these flowers open flatter rather than a trumpet shape.  the flat opening trait comes from its other parents.  there should be a sign – bring your experimental pollen !  three images…

what is the seedling bed ?

it could be described as a finding place.  or a seeing place.  is it seeing now ?  or is it seeing possibilities of the future ?  or is it a place of change ?  whatever else it is it is a place of attraction and wonder.  this flower has a lighter edge.  however the petals are dark in the center, while the sepals are lighter in the middle and have a darker area between the middle and the edge.  how will it mature when it comes out of the seedling bed ?  three images…

get close

a glint.  a flash.  have i truly stopped to look ?   have i started to look ?  what is the color ?  or more properly what are the colors ?  this one needs to come out of the seedling bed and into the full sun.  there is more to be seen.  three images…

this year’s image

back on July 10th the sibling flower was posted.  and while the shape is similar the color is a bit different.  tonight’s flower has a speckled coloration.  will it stay that way when it is moved from the seedling bed ?  i hope so.  variety.  and the image is better focused than last october.  three images…

how

i would like to try this flower center on several different outer petal color combinations.  would it combine with lighter brighter petals ?  perhaps.  first task – flag the flower and bring it out of the seedling bed.  three images…

just sit down

and start looking.  maybe a little concentrated seeing.  slowly.   when you meet the unusual do not be in too big a hurry to put it in the usual categories.  you just might skip something.  three images…
