Either way I like it, Donald.My favorite TB seedling does that.It opens a yellow/ rose violet bi-color.Then the violet fades out leaving it a
yellow/ pink bi-color which I like even better.

Thank you both Francelle and
Margie. And at the least the plant thanks you. This is maiden bloom
on a one year seedling, so it's ability to perform is still an open
question. What I posted was a day old bloom. As a fresh bloom it
had a wash of what I'd call 'bluebird blue' (w/reference to the bird) on the
falls leaving an edge of about 3/8 inch that showed the pinkness inherent in
the color. The blue shows in this earlier photo, but is not as distinct
or defined or true as the blue was on first opening. I think cameras
often don't like blue. It completely disappeared after a day. I
liked it, but wasn't too surprised that the intense blue didn't hang around.
It was clearly a wash of color sitting on the surface. I also am trying
to figure out where that particular shade of blue might have come from.
