Re: cult:: bloom

While you folks are talking about rots and spots, I am at peak bloom! About 
7,000 seedlings blooming for the first time are doing their thing. Several has 
caught my eye including a terrific red from Blaze of Glory and Ennoble. Very 
big flower, terrific branching and wonderful form. The Quandary pattern is 
showing up in a number of crosses. These involve Quandary as well as Next 
Millennium as one parent. The Crazy for You lines are a real kick. No matter what the 
other parent was, most of the seedlings are striped like CfY, but in a wide 
range of colors. Now if they just had better branching! Starring has produced 
several hundred variations on itself, with uniformly poor branching. Several 
nice seedlings from Kiss of Kisses have the Emma Cook pattern in pinkish lavender 
on white falls and light yellow standards.

Outstanding first year things from other hybridizers have been Crusader 
Rabbit, Temple of Time, Border Guard. The named things are not as far along as the 
seedlings. Louisa's Song and Wearing Rubies are looking very good as is 
Teamwork, Revere, Spice Lord and World Without End.

As an aside I find one of the greatest things about digital cameras with BIG 
memory cards is that I don't have to be juggling a notebook to record the 
shots as I go. I just take photo(s) and then I take a picture of the label. After 
downloading to the computer I put captions on each flower picture and delete 
the label pic from the card and the hard drive. What a time saver. 

Happy bloom season (No matter how many weeks away!)
