I only have four pictures, and I ended up not being so fond of the Space Agers so now I have none left. But here are my pictures:

CONJURATION - My favorite

I only have a few, and I don't have any pics good enough to share here. I just got Awesome Alex last year, and I have Petal Pushers, and Star Dock that are supposed to have these huge flounces, but only had small ones here. I also have Cross Examined, which is my favorite of this type. I'll have to try to get better pictures next year.

Hi, Are you aware of "Thornbird"? I think it was a Dykes Medalist one year. It has some unusual colors, which I fancy. Just a thought. Am thoroughly enjoying your many, beautiful photographs. Thank you.

I only have one Space Ager, and I just love it. It is Liquid Crystal Compass and a fellow forum member sent me a clump last year. In fact, until it bloomed this year and I asked, I had no clue what Space Age meant! I will post a photo after I get home from the long weekend, I posted a photo on one of the threads a few weeks ago. The colors in it are so subtle. ~ Jan
