What a shocker I had when I went into the garden today and this bloom was staring at me in a clump of singled flowered Asiatics.

This may be “Graffiti” from B and D lilies. I had gotten them late in the fall and forgotten to plant them so the plants were crawling out of the peat when I discovered them in the cool garage this spring.

The plants were short but flowering normal overall…this this gargantuan turned up. It seems to be Tetraploid in thickness of petals as well and is 50% larger than it’s sisters in all ways.

The Dahlias are in full swing too. I got some great bee pix today….and a rogue fused glass ladybug pendant for good luck on my echinacea!
