Last week we saw Dahlia 'Loverboy' married off to lovely blue Eustoma grandiflorum; however, this week finds 'Loverboy' on the prowl for a new companion. Funny, but Annette of Annette's Garden asked whether loverboys ever really settle down. I held out hope for the union. Even Hollywood can point to Warren Beatty and George Clooney as males with a certain reputation who found good matches, albeit later in life. Anyway, let's see what 'Loverboy' is up to this week.
|'Loverboy' has been found hanging out with Gomphrena 'Itsy Bitsy', possibly attracted by her height and willowy look|
|But she really is a bit of a bubblehead and you can see right through her|
|On the other hand, 'Itsy Bitsy' doesn't compete with 'Loverboy' - he's clearly in charge in this relationship|
'Itsy Bitsy' seems to have a wandering eye herself. Not content by 'Loverboy's' side, she's playing the field.
|Perhaps she was attracted to the exotic Phalaenopsis?|
|Or maybe Dahlia 'Little Robert', found hiding around in the back?|
|She seems to be floating all over the place|
|Clockwise from the left, this case of characters includes: noID Phalaeonopsis (perhaps the mystery surrounding his identity is intriguing), Dahlia 'Little Robert', cool yellow Eustoma grandiflorum, Gomphrena 'Itsy Bitsy', and Leucadendron 'Pisa'|
So what's happened to Eustoma? Well, she's blue of course.
|She's laying low this week, knocked down by the force of shifting winds|
|Her frequent companion, 'Sapphire Showers', has returned to her side|
|The tiny ensemble includes: blue Eustoma grandiflorum, Duranta erecta 'Sapphire Showers', Leucadendron 'Pisa' and Mentha spicata (spearmint)|
Will 'Loverboy' and the elegant blue Eustoma get back together? 'Loverboy' may find his first relationship was the best one. But will blue Eustoma have left town? Or might 'Loverboy' be incinerated in an August heatwave? Only time will tell.
