rocks and air

one comes from close to the ground – Philosopher’s Stone.  A solid yellow and round flower.  the other comes from the air – Sky Captain.  A mostly rounded pinkish flower that is into edges.  two seeds were planted in that hole.  they must have looked weak for some reason.  well both germinated.  one bloomed last year and this one was an unexpected surprise.  not as tall as Sky Captain.  and nowhere like the solid yellow of Philosopher’s Stone.  three images…

inside the fence

can i mix baseball metaphors here inside the garden ?   i keep telling myself that this one could be an inside the fence home run.  and someday it might pull it off.  it has good color combination.  a nice paint like splash of color.  and it is tall enough.  four images…

watch for surprises in garden

i am used to seeing the sign ‘watch for ice on bridge.’  i need to get that sign ‘watch for surprises in garden.’  usually we have a hunch what might happen putting two parent plants together.  a hope that various characteristics from each parent will combine in the seedling.  and in spite of those hunches and hopes the result is still mostly a surprise.  this one is Smoke Scream crossed with Purple Satellite.  and yes i was still surprised.  four images…

double or nuthin

bet you cannot guess what this will do.  why not ?  i will take that bet.  this is a cross of a small purple flower richly hued.  and a large pale lavender flower.  and a seedling that is only part of the answer.  to get the whole answer you might as well watch and count the stars.  because that is how many combinations there are in daylily genetics.  first the two parents and then the seedling.  four images…

shaddows and reflections

this is a seedling from the line of Stella’s Ruffled Fingers.  they tend to be short, about 18 inches 2.54 cm and to bloom early in the season.  this one has the flower shape and form of its ancestor.  the color is its own, white with a red eye zone.  three images…
