<<here's a close up of Bold Encounter to
compare between clean and not so
That doesn't even look like the same bloom! Loic, I'd say your bloom
was either a lot older than Robin's bloom OR in a much warmer climate. The
colors are not nearly as distinct on your photos!
Color: Deeper on Robin's bloom
Lines: white on Robin's bloom and fail to reach the end of the beard by
almost half an inch! ( educated guess)
Lines: yellow on Loic's bloom and extend further down a much paler fall.
Reaches the end of the beard.
Beard base extension: (for lack of a better term) Non-existent on
Beard base extension: White (& raised?) on Loic's picture.
Isn't it amazing how much different the blooms can look from season to
season and microcosm to microcosm? Sometimes you'd swear it wasn't even
the same bloom!!
