Margie -- I've
been away from the computer for most of the day, so am lagging behind.
Your new border bearded seedling put a smile on my face, too. It bears a
nice resemblance to Daughter of Stars, in my opinion. As to these two
newcomers of mine, I made a cross today on 05W8 (the chartreuse and blue
one that I misidentified as 05W211 in the earlier post) by With Castenets, which
is rounder-petaled and ruffled. I was pleased that the camera captured the
very delicate infusion of red-violet in the blue veining of the falls. I
still haven't been able to take consistently sharp flower photos with it, even
though when held at arm's length and aimed at myself it picks up all the pores
in my face and even the odd bristle missed in my shaving. Very
frustrating. In the seedling bed, I have several crosses involving
Lumalite, and it's interesting to see the intensity of color in many of
them. None with its particular pizazz yet, though. I'm looking for
several more to bloom tomorrow, with a 10-degree warmup. But the blooms
and I will also be playing tag with the rain. --

Both of those are so cute/really nice! Any plans for them?
