I would be doing the happy dance too! They are just gorgeous! I love "Virgil "and "Pastel". I'm awaiting a shipment myself and I can't wait :).
Thanks for sharing the lovely photo.

Thanks, Jennifer!
I know your excited, right? Big Grin
I'm very pleased with the selection of semps that Perenial Obsessions has. Hurray!

I also scored a Proud Zelda from Mountain Crest.
Their prices are a bit high, but they sometimes have the more difficult to find semps.

I hope you'll post some images of your new semps! Thumbs up

Thanks! Group hug

You should see Virgil, opening up nicely. Gorgeous color too.

I can't seem to find one I got from Mt. Crest in the database.
"Pinkerine" is the name and lovley is it's game. Seriously beautiful colors!



I filed a proposal to add it to the database, but I haven't found it there yet.
Maybe I did it wrong. Should I try again?

No, I got the proposal and waiting to hear back from Mountain Crest for more information before adding it to the database. It truly is a beauty.

I can see why it was named 'Pinkerine'.

Thanks, Lynn!

I'm glad I decided to get this semp.
I was going to the Mt. Crest site for Proud Zelda, I decided to get Pinkerene too.
I was must have been very weak that day, cause I ordered El Toro as well.

Where these plants are concerend, I have very little self control.
I blew right throught my garden budget this year. *Blush*
