Very nice Fred! It will be interesting to see if/how the edges develop as it moves further into spring and summer.

Thank you Fred.

As much as I enjoy these May bloom pics it pleases me that my season starts later. July isn't far off. Guess it's all seasonal across the board with some cultivars coming early or going late. Beats snow and sand storms, always informative to see what blooms where and when.

Thanks for sharing!

The dogs are to stop filching of the seedling beauties?

At least 90% of the seedlings will be dogs and some bark a lot louder than others, that's the reason for planting so many each year.
Because of the harsh winter we are over a month behind with bloom, I normally start posting seedlings in April, and have completed hybridizing by June 7th or 8th. Nothing is blooming that I want to use so it will be a short season for seed production this year.
Thanks for the comments everyone, your too kind.
Love the UF Wes!!

Nice seedlings (I like the very first one the most) - but as a dog owner and lover, I object to the thread title, lol. (Yes, I know, not all dogs are beautiful... and some breeds... Whistling )
Evaluating an iris seedling, hopefully for rebloom

Fred - Thumbs up Those are beautiful! ALL of them! I love the ones with the large eyes like BLACK SHEEP X LILLIAN'S LYING TIME AGAIN! And I've been really curious about Dragonfly Dawn offspring, thanks for sharing the one photo of DRAGONFLY DAWN X BUDDY'S WILD AND WONDERFUL! 8" bloom is sure not shabby! You've got some keepers there. I look forward to your next naming contest! Big Grin

Fred - I really enjoy seeing your new crop of seedlings, and your thinking behind some of these crosses. It's interesting to see your use of 'Best Edge'. John Benz has been using 'Best Edge' a lot in his quest to produce large toothy edges. We owe Matthew Kaskel so much for his generosity in sharing such an important flower with his fellow hybridizers, never asking anything in return.
