Day two of my 30 days wild celebration lands on a Sunday. I don’t like going out on a weekend (too many people…shudder) so Saturdays and Sundays are usually a bust for me as I like to stay away from humans as much as possible, but that didn’t mean there wasn’t any thing awesome to discover for my 30 days wild adventure.
Much to my surprise I woke up this morning to mother nature giving me a wonderful gift. Bright orange baubles shining brightly in the sun.
Nature had my random act of wildness covered. My globosa has bloomed.
Globosa is an orange butterfly bush that looks nothing like it’s purple cousin with their flowery spears. Globosa flowers earlier than other varieties and has little bright orange baubles instead of the usual spear like columns that are covered in tiny clusters of flower in purple hues. There are only one or two Buddleia plants that are not on the same colour spectrum and Globosa is one of them.
Getting excited about a plant flowering might seem a little crazy and not important to anyone else, but I have been trying for years to get a globosa to grow in my garden, I’ve lost count at the amount of cuttings I’ve planted that didn’t take, but at long last I have one that came into flower during 30 days wild no less.
A little event for day two of my 30 days wild adventure, but no less wonderful to me.
