First of the years flowers.
Every year these beauties amaze me, early exotic and hardy.
They have hybridized in my garden to an amazing mix of shades of pink, cream, spotted and green.
I have painted them in the past here which do you like best? I was amazed that the old one had been pinned 472 times! I don't often check these things and am surprised by some statistics, 155,375 notes for this post on tumblr? And followers on tumblr 943....Do these reflect anything? Who knows in this social digital age.
