Hello Adam
I wish i could go back in time and be back in April when my first seedlings opened too!
You are right, the super-excitement  is incredible and you just want the whole world to know about it!
We opened the garden to the public yesterday and i managed to give some pots with seedlings ( i don't have room enough to plant them all ) to some visitors.
My only hope is for them to feel this super-excitement when they star to bloom next year...and get them hooked for life to that feeling!
I'm the only pollen dauber in Holland actually and more afficionados would be a great thing over here.
Not nice to be the only junkie around...!
Congratulations with your first baby, and don't listen to too many advices, the only one i give you is "follow your instinct and do as you please".
Thanks for sharing, it's what this forum is made for, isn't it?

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: My very first seedling . . .

Hi everyone!

Finally, after THREE LONG YEARS (it really doesn't seem that long now. hehehe.) I have my very first seedling in bloom! Yayyyy!!!!!!

Okay, one drawback . . . I know it's nothing exceptional to look at. But here it is. :-)

Parentage is "Earl Hall seedling X BLUE FOR SUE". My clump of the Hall seedling is in bloom right now, which this seedling looks a lot like. Blue For Sue isn't in bloom yet, however. Oh, and most of the seedlings in this cross, 18 of 'em, have a lot of nice increases like it's Hall parent.

The last thing I'll say about this (except that I don't plan on using it for hybridizing material,) is that the terminal bloom is below the foliage of the stalk. A sibling of this one is in bud right now, too, and it's below the foliage as well.

I'm happy though! Just wanted to share my super-excitement with you all. Thanks for all your help, encouragement in germination techniques, and wonder seedling pics that YOU ALL post for me to enjoy! You're all a blessing!
