far flung

looking at this flower and trying to categorize my reactions.  is it winding up trying to extend its space ?  does the energy from the throat radiate out into the purple petals ?  or should i give it more time to speak ?  and spend some time simply listening.  perceiving.  learning.  three images…

blush and glow

how could such a simple color pattern be so exciting ?   a dash of yellow and a blush of pink.  just a hint of glow.  it works. now to mix it with that next cross.  three images…

when you cross a seedling back to a sibling you gamble.  you can double up on good genetics.  you can also double up on so so and not so good genetics.  it is a risk.  this seedling is not the result of a sibling cross.  more like a cousin.  however there are genetic from Walking the Pattern on both sides.  the cross is Walking the Pattern x Asterisk) x ( Walking the Pattern x (Smoke Scream x Talon.  wherever the good genetics came from i do like the results.  three images…

Heisenberg

in science when you try too hard to study a particle the act of studying throws off the measurement.  very loose translation nature loves a bit of mystery.  my translation.  claiming poetic license.  both nature and science still stand on their own undiminished.  sometimes you just have to take the measurements you can get.  other times stand back in awe.   that is my theory for tonight.  now let us move on ever so little to Talon.  a plant with the claws of nature.  three images…

unfolding

gardening is full of surprises.  some of them are very pleasant.  there is pollen and the pistil.  mythically speaking one would be the mixing container and the other the implement for stirring.  stir gently at times.  three images of a new seedling…

G2 too

this will be continued.  and continued.  there are about a dozen siblings and cousins with Stella’s Ruffled Fingers or her children getting ready to bloom in the garden.  eventually they will make their way here.  unless they are named pete and repeat.  then i might just skip a few.  or not.  this one is a bit more spidery.  and all of them will most likely need a year to mature and rebloom.  the second year will be more telling of the final look and form.  this one started the day fairly straight and then picked up a bit of ruffles and twist.  they are small 3 – 4 inch 7.6 – 10.1 cm flowers.  several images…
