We seem to have exhausted the purple pictures, maybe there are some nice orange ones or yellow ones to look at. I don't have a lot of them, Maybe I'll surpise myself when I go digging in the files, but here's a few to start off the fun.

I LOVE 'Reckless Abandon'!!! It is on one of my list....somewhere..... 'Ginger Ice' and 'Sophia' are lovely!

Tom - What is remarkable is that I am drawn to one of the older introductions in your amazing display. Bride's Halo by Mohr 1971. It is outstanding.

I also like Sofia which I tried to get last year and did not (so now it is on my list for this year for sure).

Bride's Halo is distinctive, crisp, and bright. It has the right amount of bright yellow on the edge. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

Some nice ones everyone! Paul those are some nice IB seedlings! Like Rosa Brooks, very sweet, and Clothed in Glory looks a bit like Ring Tone.

Yes Greg, Bride's Halo is one of my favorite older ones. It might be a nice challenge for someone to try to re-create that nice clean yellow edge on a more modern ruffled bloom.

Paul Black introduced 'Stolen Sweets' a few years ago, which could be considered a modern version of 'Bride's Halo'.

WOW stunning pictures everybody Thumbs up really like yellow's and Orange's in the garden my eye is always drawn to those bright tropical colors before anything else and we are starting to see some patterns coming out in them that are new and exciting. These 1st two pictures are just random but what jumps out at me in them is the oranges and yellows, they really make a impact.

I got Beach Dance, Cotillion Gown, Uninhibited & Flame Amber last summer, Now I'm excited to see them up close and personal. I see that I need to add Birthday girl and Chestnuts Roasting to my wish list. Oh my the list just keeps growing, I need to win the lottery. Guess I better start buying the tickets. Nice start to Sunday Morning. I'll be needing much more by noon I'm sure. Smiling

And if Mary Ann wants in.. Whistling .well...it would REALLY be big, than ! Maybe I'll go down to the gas station this afternoon, and buy a few "quick-picks ". Hilarious! .....Arlyn
