mutant echinacea

Yesterday we went to the Penn Atlantic Nursery Trade Show.  Lots of interesting things, some need to be saved for the next issue of the magazine.  But there was this one thing, that I just have to share.  One of the standholders showed us a blossom from an echinacea plant in their garden.  The picture is not a good one, but you can see that there is the central cone, from which the smaller florets spring.

The people who showed us this flower had a laptop with them, and showed us a picture of the original bloom of this flower.  The petals were pure, clear green!!!  Cool, huh?

Mucho Chicaneeta? I've dated mucho chicaneeta over the years and have found while the beautiful ones of the species are terrific, the ones with brains are ever so more delightful. It's so enjoyable having breakfast while having an insightful conversation. At the present I'm dating a Single Chicaneeta who has a wonderful combination of brains and beauty. Tonight we are plann......... OOOOOOOOOOOOOh! Mutant Echinacea...... Um, never mind.
