Ann - that is one of your seedlings? Hurray! Hurray! Thumbs up Thumbs up I know people who would pay big time for that one! Whistling Seriously! I think that would be called cresting.

That is the best shot of a clump of Moonlight Masquerade that I have ever seen. Tried to grow it once, and it did not like it here.

A few of mine are starting to bloom now. Most of my little bitty ones are blooming, but some of the larger ones are starting.

Susan, love your kitties! I have 3 garden cats. I wish I could bring them in, but two of them are still very feral even after 5 years here. This is a Mom, and her two kittens... all female -spayed of course! Someone dumped Ginger out here, with her kittens. The kittens were about 3-1/2 months old at the time. Stupid people - but they are great cats, so I am actually glad they were dumped out. I had to trap the kittens in a live trap to take them to be spayed, and they have never forgiven me for that. Just a couple months ago, I was able to very briefly pet Punkin for the first time since she was let out of the cage after getting her stitches out over 4 years ago. Now that she has finally allowed herself to be petted, I think she will come around fairly fast. She liked it enough that she was purring.

They love to catch garter snakes. That is Cider with the snake in her mouth, her sister Punkin laying beside her, and their Mom Ginger facing away. They can be hard to tell apart. Punkin is darker, with rings instead of stripes. Ginger and Cider look so much alike, but Cider is normal weight and a little lighter than the other two and Ginger is fat. Ginger is the friendly one of the group. She loves to be petted, scratched, brushed etc. I have no problem giving her pills, or putting flea meds on. Cider likes to be petted, but I have been unable to get her into a cat carrier to get her to the vet for a checkup, and can't put flea meds on her. Punkin is still a long way from being as friendly as Cider, and she is not that friendly. We have patience, and time... so I have hopes that they will eventually become very social and friendly, like all my other cats have been. We don't know how they were treated before they were dumped - possibly they had some very bad experiences with people.

When they catch snakes, I rescue the snake and put it back in the woods. Snakes do good - no need to let them kill one.

Always stop to smell the roses and the hostas and daylilies and lilacs and on and on and on.

Ann, your seedling is breathtaking! Love the color! : )

Jules, really enjoyed the story of your cats! Only once when I lived in the mountains have I tried to befriend a feral cat, but I think he'd been on his own for too long, and he never did become more trusting, unfortunately.

A few blooms from my garden.....

Avant Garde, FFO. Joy, AG is pretty decent in cold weather. Though not all the blooms will open flat, it still does okay.

Carpenter's Divinely Blessed FFO. I only have a few of Carpenter's dips, not all of which have bloomed. But, both DB's and Peach Magic's blooms look quite good on the 2nd day up until at least noon before they begin to wilt. This one did open on a cool day without problems - though that's not true of Peach Magic.

Kitty Wells, 2nd FO. She looks so lovely here, but it was a warm day (70-ish). She absolutely can't handle cool days, and resembles a cone...

Lillian's Fringe Benefits, 3rd bloom. This is her first season, and probably the plant needs more time to settle before the fringe will thicken up. She doesn't seem to do great with cold days, but once again that may work itself out over time. Beautiful color! : )

Linda's Magic. What a thrill it was to see LM actually be the icy pink as described! Generally, there's a good chance that icy pinks tend to turn icy peachy tones in my garden (for example Victorian Lace, which hasn't yet bloomed). She doesn't seem to have too many problems opening in cool weather.

Living in Luxury, looking simply smashing. This one definitely doesn't care whether it's warm or cold - performs beautifully.

Here's a single of Living in Luxury that I need some help with. Are those petaloids that are in the center of the bloom? And what exactly do 'angel wings' look like? If someone could post a pic of angel wings, I'd be grateful!
