Random plant photos from the last several weeks.
This year’s crop of chicks just germinated. These start out sooooooo tiny! Just little specks of green initially. But they grow fast. Here, they are about 2 months old. They don’t get their colors until later in the year.
My tree peony (Paeonia delavayi). I was hoping for a deep dark red and got this. Still not sure if I like this particular color or not. And, all of the flowers hang down and are hidden amongst the leaves, so you really have to go looking for them and then turn them up to see them. That’s a lot of effort to see a flower, but at least they aren’t low to the ground like a lot of the hellebores that do the same darn thing.
Wall iris (Iris tectorum) from seed (2018).
This part of the flower reminds me of the crest of a sea serpent lifting up above the waves.
New growth on the silver vein creeper (Parthenocissus henryana).
