My favorite this year was Dragonfly Dawn x Dragonfly Dawn. I got 4 seeds to germinate that I purchased on LA from Rich last year. Only this one bloomed for me this year. Other 3 will hopefully bloom next Spring!

Wow, such incredible seedlings here! Becky, I love your pastel beauty! And Ashton/Terry, I'm totally taken with your Nikki Schmitt X Blue Oasis seedling and your Beautiful Edgings X Heavenly Pink Butterfly beauty -- and that last one is wonderfully unique!

Makes me realize what a beginner I am!

O wow, what great looking seedlings. Nice colors. Im afraid I really went a bit overboard on seeds this past week on the LA. Every year I say ' no more', then such great crosses come up.

Betty - Thanks!

Pam - What seed cross did you purchase this year from the LA that you are most excited to see bloom for the first time?

Fred, that first one is incredible -- and a yummy pastel to boot! But my favorite is WILD DREAMS X LILLIAN'S VAPOR TRAIL -- such a beautiful pattern on another yummy pastel!

And Pam, your two seedlings are really wonderful too -- love those deep green throats with those great colors!
