Country kid in the big city

Fritillaria orientalis

I've never understood why this one isn't a hot seller, seems like I always have some left over at the end of the season. Its a great pot specimen for sure.

The kiddo and I at the Garfield park conservatory, this past week. Yes, I survived a week in Chicago. The Field museum, the art institute, the Sears tower, a live taping of NPR's news quiz show, and seeing family was spectacular.

A couple of Californians. Fritillaria liliacea in the foreground and F. agrestis in the background. Interesting cultural note. I lost the liliacea growing in pots I'm the hoop house, but F. agrestis is doing great both in the hoop house and outside in the raised bed. It really goes to show that you should always have back ups to the backups..I think in sports terminology that's called depth of field, or maybe that's photography? Anyway, you get my drift.

Fritillaria acmopetala 'dark form'

Sunny and 66 today, storm clouds rolling in off the Pacific as I write this.
