The funniest thing happened
to me this last weekend. I was so embarrassed! I just had to
I was over at Shepard's Iris
Garden taking photos. I wandered into the seedling field and was doing my
little schtick of "if these were mine, which ones would I select".
While going through the rows
of seedlings I noticed an arilbred that was absolutely spectacular. I ran
over to it and looked good and hard. Then I stepped back to look at the plant as
a whole, and then I got up really close. I just had to photograph it.
I thought, OMG! This is
just gorgeous! He has GOT to introduce it, but before that he should send
it to be a guest in gardens EVERYWHERE. It is absolutely wonderful...yada
yada yada. I was going nuts over this little flower, for I had not ever
seen an arilbred quite like this one before, and personally they usually do not
do a lot for me.
So I got down and
photographed the bloom. It was difficult because it was very breezy that day,
and the petals kept moving around. Finally, just at the right moment, I
snapped the picture and got it.
Then I went to the little
sign next to it to snap a picture of the seedling number for reference, and
instead of having a seedling number, the darn thing said PRINCE THOU ART.
lol~! I was so embarrassed.
So, anyway here is the
photograph. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did...lol. But I am
glad to see it in bloom because I was given an increase of it last year which I
threw in the garden. Right now it has six increases, but no buds so
