Sometimes you find a plant with a name that you just must have. The first time this happened to me it was a daylily named 'Scatterbrain'. I figured it was named for me. The day I saw Hosta 'Tea and Crumpets', it too just had to be added to my garden.
Other times there were plants that I found appealing but I refused to purchase because the name was distasteful. Names such as 'Booger' or 'Devil's Footprint' are just not ones I care to have people read as they tour my garden.
Last month I read a blog with lots of comments on the new Hydrangea name 'Pinky Winky'. Well, that might not be a name I'd choose for a plant but I did choose to get a 'Pinky Winky' and it's waiting in a pot for me to decide where to plant it.
Today I have more things to do than there are hours to do them in. While I'd like to spend the morning blogging, visit other great sites and answer comments, I just can't afford the time. As for the afternoon, there won't be any strolling around the garden until this Saturday when life hopefully slows down a bit.
So, my one single photo for the day is that of a daylily that I highly recommend you seek out and grow. Not only does the name convey my feelings this morning, but the color is just amazing in the garden. In case you didn't guess from the title of this post, this is Hemerocallis 'Primal Scream'
Please forgive me if I don't stop by and visit you in the next day or two. I'll post something quick each day but for now, AAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Phew, now I feel better :-)
