帰ってみれば,When I came home.

2014. 10. 19
旅行に行って留守にしていた。水やりは自動でセットされていたが,台風が2回も来たし,どうなっているのかと心配しながら帰ってみれば,
I have been absent from home while traveling.  Watering was set to be automatic, but there came two big typhoons.  I came home worrying, and this is what I find.

これは,夏に買ったイワヒバの鉢から生えていた芽を植えた鉢。葉っぱはホトトギスみたいだが,小さいからなんだろうと思っていたら,なにやら妙なものになった。ホタルブクロでもないし・・・
This is one of several young leaves parasitizing in the selaginella pot I bought at Tateshina this past summer.  I was not sure what these were although they look like toad lilies but too small.  There is a strange bud like a bellflower, but I have never seen it.  

翌朝正体を現した。やっぱりホタルブクロだ。イワヒバ苗としては少々高かったが,おまけ付きを見ぬいた私の目は大したものだ。と自画自賛。
Next morning it opens.  It IS a toad lily bud.  I just have never seen buds of toad lily.  The price of the selaginella pot was a little too expensive, but it was talent of me that foreseen the freebie. 


出かける時には蕾だったネリネは,満開を過ぎているが,まだ見られる。ゆっくり咲く花で良かった。 
Nerine was still buds, and now it is still flowering although not at the full bloom.


リンドウも徒長苗のようになっていて気になっていたが,なんと見事にたくさん咲いた。リンドウが二年目も咲いたのは初めてだ。 
Gentiana had been not looking good spindly growing, but at my surprise they made a lot of beautiful flowers.  This is my first time that genitana gives flowers over two years.

カランコエは花か新芽か判らないが,何やら2つも伸びてきた。
Kalanchoe has started to grow two shoots whether it may become flowers or pups.

何だか,主人がいないほうがうまく育つみたいだな。
It looks like they grow better without their keeper...
