Good and bad mews today

Well here is the good news, my first seedling baby to set a flower of all the seedling babies that I have. It was doing so well and showing so much promise. At First It looked like it was going to be pink then as it started to unfurl it looked like it was going to be stripped.

Oh and then it started to open it was beautiful and the color was Salmon on the inside, you can’t judge the color from outside of the petals, no stripes on this one.  So Salmon it is and in different light it almost looks orange. I was going to take some photos of the flower this morning when the unthinkable happened, the flower was almost fully open and I walked into the room and the flower stem was gone. I thought someone has stolen the flower when I was sleeping. I rubbed my eyes and took a closer look and saw that the flower and stem was hanging on a few threads, it brock clean off from the bulb. OMG what am I going to do now? well I thought for a moment and searched around in the kitchen for a glass. I cut the stem off so that the glass wouldn’t fall over then I started taking some photos after I had some breakfast so that I don’t fall over with low sugar since I injected insulin first thing before I saw the flower. Well I took some photos and they turned out quite nice. Here are a few more photos.
