10 buds, nice form, but of
course it is just another blue.

Hi Mike,
     Well, I dunno, but some blues have a great hue to th em and this seems like one.    I have GOODNIGHT IRENE blooming right now and although she's an older one, the color blue is remarkable although in the same range as others I have...still it's a nice shade that catches your eye.    10 buds sounds like a great feature to me, only about half the ones I have get up to that high a count, average here seems to be 7-8.
I may fuss next year more with fertilizer to see if that average goes up.    I'd give this one a home, being a fan of blues.    Good luck with it!
