I am hoping this isn't a prelude to that again, but there is no point in not admitting I am struggling still.
But ? .. onward and upward ? with what this post is actually about !
My wild child peony, Green Lotus , is blooming again and making me happy enough to put some effort into an actual post.
I took a few pictures in shade so the dark background brings out those hits of pink and green in it more than last year's "in the sun" position.
I took it with my Nikon D3100 and a 40 mm lens around 10 AM on the 11th of June.
I want to make an effort of recording exactly what I did so I can actually REMEMBER ?
I , or should I say my garden, has taken a lot of "hits" from this past winter and it has been rather discouraging ... from many Japanese maples either dead or half dead (I haven't been able to bring myself to dig those out yet .. some are sprouting from the root stalk .. they want to live ! )
In fact I have a strange situation of two varieties possibly? growing from the root stalk and the graft.
Has anyone tried to accommodate something like this?
The original was named Emperor 1 .. all red leaves .. am I mistaken as to what is happening?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated !
