Furious

Things are really moving now. I was out contemplating the idea of blackness yesterday:

when I turned around and noticed a huge spike on the Beschorneria rigida, out of nowhere.

You are just going to take my word for how stupendously exciting this is. Until it blooms. Then you will see. And then I turned around again and the first Fritillaria meleagris appeared.

Complete with aphid, of course. Anyway, I'm starting to get excited.

Thanks Kate. When I uploaded the picture I was thinking, "how stupid is this green aphid to think he can hide on the purple-brown fritillaria?" Then I realized I never saw it when I was taking the picture...

Wow...I always wanted to get a fritilleria to bloom, but so far nothing. Nice shot!
