As most of your are probably sitting in front of
your fires, contemplating your next year purchases, may I make a couple of
suggestions. This year I acquired Twice Thrilling (Osborne 94) and Barbara's
Lace (Sutton 02) (yes I got a sneak preview). I have found both to be very
fertile both ways. TT has many excellent progeny and BL is said to give lovely
pinks and yellows, which often rebloom. Besides which I think there are both
absolutely gorgeous, the form and substance on BL are exquisite.
