Raspberry Swirl Opened about 8:00 a.m. Hasn't completely relaxed yet for a good picture, but it's what I have right now with a thunderstorm looming in the west. Have two others trying to open too, but didn't quite make it. One will have "birth defects", but the other looks normal.

There's two more open on Raspberry Swirl this morning, and they are nicer blooms, it has 14 bloom stalks and I can't wait to see the clump later. I also have another one open I noticed in the dark when I took the dogs out this morning.

Well, I guess I'm just not supposed to take pictures yet. Have a few open, took lots of blurry pictures, so I guess it's not light enough out yet. Only one turned out, and it's more blue then it should be but I'll show it to you anyway. This is Number 2 of the TB's and it's Mariposa Sky Looking a bit blue and fuzzy.

Number 4 of the TB's opened yesterday, but it was so windy I couldn't get a good picture. This morning there are two of them open. This is Fancy Dress.

That's a nice, nice, color. Tom Thumbs up ! I noticed many of mine are opening "all at once"...several blooms on several stalks......it's going to be over pretty quick this year, I' afraid ! Although, it's supposed to cool way down for the next few days, that should help.
