The insane wind broke a stem of Helleborus x 'Golden Sunrise'...so when the world gives you lemons...
It joined a few cut stems from our local New Seasons Market. The different faces of Scabiosa...
It's color worked with the Hellebore flowers perfectly.
And I love how different each one was, the stages all so unique.
They were joined by some of that cool thing with the green balls that I can't remember the name of (dammit)...
Another shot of the Hellebore stem. I suppose one nice thing about it breaking was that since the flowers are past their prime, and starting to form seeds, they actually last quite awhile in a vase.
Hopefully (fingers crossed, salt tossed, wood knocked) I'll be sharing more vases with Scabiosa in the staring roll...
I started seeds of both these types a few weeks ago. They've both germinated successfully (that's something else in the second tray, Bomarea sp. (Orange flowering), seeds from my plant...we'll see, I just sowed them last week).
But I'm still waiting for the "true leaves" to break through.
This one is trying.
Come on little guys!
When not luxuriating in the sun of the driveway (we've had a couple warm days) they're hanging out in the backseat of my car. Good light, they're not assaulted by insane rainstorms, and they stay a little warmer. It's a mobile greenhouse...
I've also got several Zinnia seeds to plant, when the weather warms.
I got a bee in my bonnet last week and was going to plant them, but smart Facebook friends warned me to wait a few weeks (we're still unseasonably cold here). Just as well, I've got Agave pups to plant out and get to rooting.
Lots of them!
