Blooming today in my gardens . . .
'Haunted Heart' (Keppel 2010) -- many thanks to K for sending this along! It's going to be SO fun to hybridize with!

I've had Laugh Lines for over 5 years, and had to move it twice, since it didn't bloom . . . stuck "something" under the Catalpa tree, and last night discovered WHO it was!! Yippee! I liked it in the photo, and I like it in person, too. :-)
