Hi Rose,
Actually... that beautiful diamond dusting is only the mist that was drizzling down all that day. It did make it look extra pretty though.
And you're right about 'Easy Smile' and the form. Thankfully these modern Tall Beardeds really put the "stamp" on their offspring formwise. It's a set-back compared to the most current modern TB form, but compared to the old historic TB form it's still a big jump forward. The strongest influence I'm seeing formwise coming from the diploid pollen parents is probably the tendency to have fairly open standards.

Thanks also for the tip on 'Miss Meredith'. I'm not familiar with that one but will have to go look it up.
Thanks, Tom

I love the diamond dusting all over this one. I do not remember Easy Smile's form and substance looking quite this nice either. Very nice.
If you are looking for aqua and blue green, I think that the SDB Miss Meredith has a lot to offer. I haven't seen many that show those colors as well as she does.
