photo, FOGBOUND.

Patrick, that is the best photo of FOGBOUND I have yet seen.  I saved 
a digital copy in my "pictures" folder--with a code attached 
identifying it as yours.

Keppel was really excited about the seedlings he had from FOGBOUND 
and LOTUS LAND.  Both of them have "pastel" rather than "tangerine" 
coloring, especially in the beard.  Refreshing!

Which calls to mind something I've noted among the "new" (to me) 
cv's.  AMBROISIE is also remarkably beautiful.  The published 
pictures (Aitken--too dark, Cayeux--color wrong--looks blue-and-pink, 
and one other, forget where) do not begin to do it justice.  It, too, 
has a pastel-looking beard, appearing soft rose-pink, very attractive 
on the soft rose-pink petal color that I wouldn't describe 
as "raspberry" unless one added a whole lot of thick cream to the 
berries).  The color of the flower, the form and texture, the 
bloomstalk are impressive.  The standards have been fully closed here 
on each of the blooms so far.  The published photos show standards 
somewhat open.  Also, it is fertile--both pod and pollen--which I 
find very helpful.  Next year, if my FOGBOUND doesn't freeze again (I 
had only one blossom, at ground level, but podded it anyway) I intend 
to cross the two.  AMBROISIE is strongly grounded in Melba Hamblen's 
work and carries that line forward with verve.  That's a useful and 
powerful heritage.
