A few weeks back i just saw a broken scape emerging from the weeds. I don't know if a pet was there, or maybe mother was not able to see it when she went there sometimes. It reminded me that some bulbs are in those pots, forgotten for sometime. So i watched them during weekends i am home, and my sister put a trellis for the scape. She also watered them. And i was rewarded during the Holy Week Holidays, some are already spent, but some are still lovely.
Even the back of the flowers are lovely too, the above looks like undulating and swaying with the winds.
Above are the reproductive parts of the flower; the stigma and style, the anther containing the pollen and the filament. I love how the stigma divides into 3 arms, purposely to easily capture the pollen. I wonder how the dark margin helps the anther, or if it has a physiological purpose.
This is the 3rd scape, developing after the 2 scapes are almost spent. So there will be the available red presence in the garden for a longer time. Next weekend they might not be there anymore, but i hope my pollinated flowers all get fertilized, so i can harvest some seeds in a few months.
