Gardening 365 – Day 101

Do you recall when I planted the tulips and lost the tags, flying blind on what was planted w/what where? Oh yeah. Its ugly.

And I wish Princess Irene wasn’t built like a linebacker. Gorgeous flower, nasty short stem. Let’s Darwinize that, ok?

Here’s a new one. Although I abhor red and yellow together in the garden because it makes me think of Mickey D’s or Shell gas stations, this particular newbie is intriguing. Look at how tall and swan-like the stem is? uh, huh. The photo was taken in 40mph winds last Friday at RoozenGaarde in Skagit Valley.
