Feeling a little droopy?
Like vibrant life is zooming past you
while you seem stuck in place?
Do the short days and long nights have you climbing the wall?
Is the rain and cold getting under your skin?
It may just be a case of the blues.
When you're blue it's a good time to take the plastic bag off of your head. Normal color should return within minutes.
But seriously, who could be blue when his Dichroa febrifuga is doing this? And yes, I went out in the dark to enjoy them.
Here's a puzzler for you. I've got four Dichroas in my garden. One of them, the smallest, is bearing those heavenly blue berries above and had dark blue blooms whilst the other three look like the the picture below and had lighter blooms. I thought that these were all clones of the same plant. Why would this happen? Are some male and others female? Really wouldn't matter in a clone situation, right?
