Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Fragrant Flowers

I’m experimenting with various plants in my back yard to see what I like and what grows here. One plant is a dianthus called “Duchess of Westminster”. I have only grown annual dianthus plants before. This is a perennial, honest-to-goodness carnation. I got it from my favorite mail-order plant place, Logee’s. They describe it as being a good bloomer, and having a strong fragrance. Nice!

I received it in the spring of last year. I planted it in a pot and gave it a nice, sunny location. It grew a little bit, but didn’t flower. Dang.

But the other day I went out and saw this:

Yay! Blooms! I can’t wait for them to open so I can smell them. Mmm…

    A carnation!! Are they white? If so, can you water it with colorful water and start that science experiment right away? (I’m kidding.)

    I love carnations. They’re like the pom-poms of flowers: so cheerful!
