  • Posted by diggit (southeast Indiana - Zone 6a) on May 15, 2013 12:04 PM concerning plant:
    Was reported to rebloom in California.
    Note that the pinker of the images is scanned from 35mm film while the whiter sharper image is digital and is more true to the actual appearance of the bloom. I am finding this to be common not only from digital format compared to film format but even from camera to camera............ and film brand differences as well on the old slides and negatives.
