Okay, but you can't let the other semps and jovis here this.

Right now S. 'Lemon Babies'. They are so tiny, and the color makes me think of my mom's lemon meringue pie. But I will deny this if you tell the rest of my semps. Whistling

Today it would be Othello. Please excuse the damage on the leaves from a hail storm last month. Even with that this semp is 9 inches across right now. What a whopper of a semp.
