The Last Balloon Flower

This flower is known as Platycodon grandiflorus and has has some cultivars called 'Double Blue' colored double violet blue or 'Hime Murasaki' colored lavender-blue; or 'Hakone Blue' colored double violet-blue.
Here is a picture of the last of the balloon flowers. I am trying to grow four more plants but the seeds have yet to sprout after more than 7 days.
I was amazed by 11 PM last night I did not hear fireworks. I am not sure if people fired them off earlier this year or since it was a work night people needed to go to bed. Whatever the reason, it was a lot easier to go to sleep.
The rain today is keeping me from working outside. It is good though we are getting it though.
