Hello Linda,

I've been amazingly successful!
We've had only rain twice  in 2 months and the daubing has been  incredible!

Pods everywhere.

Still the TBs to pollinate with the frozen SDB pollen.

Don't know if i will have the courage to pollinate TB X TB so i can give the
seeds away, i think i've had my dose of crossing, I'm almost burnt out!

Of course there are loads that didn't take, particularly when the pollen is
too old in my margarine boxes, but i'm afraid the 700 of last year might be
When i have a bit of time I'll check!

We've had a little rain in the night (3rd time in 2 months!), so the clay is
less like concrete and i can weed this morning.
As soon as the iris are dry i will daub again!

Till as soon as i can take some time off!

  Amazing that anything has managed to make surviving pods this year - 13
  intentional, plus two or three that either didn't get tagged, were
  visited by bees (highly unlikely in all the rain) or will turn out to be

  Nothing from most of the new stuff, but hooray for RED ROCK CANYON -
  lots of pollen before it started pouring down rain, & one pod from it
  still looks healthy on IMM.

  And a pod from HoM X BRILLIANT DISGUISE.  Not sure how that one ever
  produced good pollen in spite of all the rain.  Unlike RRC, it wasn't in
  a pot, so couldn't bring it indoors.

  Another pod (finally!) from IMM X SUNNYSIDE DELIGHT.  & a few more
  RENOWN pods - RENOWN X yellow: (MATRIX x CSONG); 2 pods from yellow
  amoena:(IMM x AMITY ESTATE) X RENOWN.  Should be quite a bit of (ugly?
  hafty? muddy?) rebloom there.

  Betty, also another pod from a cross back to IMM.  IMM X yellow cycle
  rebloomer: (IMM x CSONG)

  And a bunch of pods using pollen from one of the orange GOLDEN APPLE X
  CRYSTAL GLITTERS seedlings on whatever was left after it quit raining.
  Several on HoM, one on Missouri Mist, one on a t-bearded bluish white

  This year was a good(?) reminder of why I've made some types of crosses
  in the past - not much to work with.

  Betty, Loic, did either of you have much success this year?
