     I hardly ever display anything that has had a flower to fold.
I hold the bloom back in the refrigerator for as much as ten days.

	When I won QOS on BOOGIE WOOGIE, it had been in the 
refrigerator probably ten days.  This was the only time BW did 
anything for me, another one some thought Dykes worthy. As a 
QOS,  BW was grown in my garden about 125 miles away from my 
current garden.  It is an IB here.  Also, at the Texas convention, it 
didn't seem to be shouting at anybody and it was short with small 

	On this Dykes thread, it appears another Space Ager, 
MESMERIZER, could be the next Dykes. This would be three for 
Monty.  The best has been saved for last!

     CONJURATION is horribly out of proportion here, and as it 
performs in my garden, it is not of Dykes quality because of its 
gangly nature and inability to have consistent horns.  The  small 
flowers appear on towering stalks.  I have put it in some poor soil to 
see if it can shorten itself and look more in proportion.
