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!
My first hybrid!
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…
