geeze louise!

do all these buds thrill you?
i purchased this louise odier plant from pickering nurseries 22 years ago for my little victory garden in boston.
when we moved here in 1992 my belly was heavy with twins, and my mom came up to dig my treasures from that victory garden to move them here.
so grateful for her hard work!

last week it looked like this-
and now,

 the specks on the leaves are pollen.


i wish i could say i'll take another picture next week, but i'll probably be cutting them for the buds.  
sorry to say, but that's how it goes here on a little flower farm.
imagine what she'd look like if she could grow wild and free!
