A certain unknown something 05/08/07

a mini rose-carnation looking thing (c) by Kirk Jordan

All pics, the end of March, central Arkansas.

Anyone who knows what this thing is, feel free to help. The white and pink variations belong to two different plants in different locations but they appear to be of the same general thing. The white blooms were just a tad tighter, each flower smaller than a pea, and posted on a stiff woody stem.


Sorry to be off in my regular postings. The work schedule had been extra hectic and is slowing down, but I'm still in the catch up mode. Beyond that, I've noticed that we have been way off in local flower display following the Easter freeze. ((We can readily see the damage of something like a tornado, but our Easter freeze did as much or more damage to Arkansas agriculture.)) Many of our April flowers (as well as peaches, strawberries, blueberries, etc) just didn't make it, or on timer delay. Looks like the May blooms may start making a showing.


Wanted to remind you all that there will be a showing of my photo works at the Heritage Museum/Trinity Gallery with a reception this Friday Night, May 11th. Come and enjoy the band fine cheese and color.
