Well, I was warned in the comments last week that if I looked away from my tiggies, I’d regret it. Of course I have still been taking daily photos over the last two weeks, I’ve just stopped flooding my followers with flowers of the same feathery form.
This week, something new grew!
We’ve all seen the pink ones:
We’ve all seen light yellow ones:
We’ve all seen bright yellow ones:
We’ve all seen orangey-red ones:
And we’ve all seen red-orangey ones.
But: what happens if these two mix? Red-orangey and light yellow:
It seems that these two got together last year, *cue 1970’s style porno music* and they made a new bloom!
I love the stripes, don’t you? Like they were painted with a dry fan-brush.
All of these are coming up on just one stem. I am pretty sure it is one of the new baby ones from seed I stuck in that pot.
Pretty cool, eh? I wonder if it will grow true next year from seed, and I wonder if I am the only one to have it? I’m not going to Google it just yet and possibly ruin my fun.
I wonder what I should name it…
I don’t know much about flowers – except these are really cool – the first ones are so brilliant, but this new one. It will be interesting to see if it will make a reappearance next year. That 3rd from the bottom one does look painted.
I’m going to tag the stem and segregate the seeds come the time to do so, and we will see! Might take a few years, but patience is a virtue in gardening 🙂
Don’t stand still, you never know what they could create given time! Thanks for not doing what you said you would 😉
I did do what I said I would – you didn’t get five-plus pics from every day last week! 30 something pics is just too many for one post 🙂
It’s like one of the exotic tulips that fueled the Dutch Tulip Bubble way back when. Cash in if you can!
They are BEAAAAUTIFUL! Especially the last picture and the first!
Now thats pretty, I’m loving the colours 🙂
Ah wow!! Superb 🙂
