Thank you. I am so behind in the photographs. To do: filing them is a task I dread. I have done over a 100 pollinations in the last three days. Keeping track of them and the ultimate problem of where I will put the seedlings is a challenge.

I am going to start eliminating a few cultivars because the rust is too much. But so pretty to lose. And several of the seedlings will be among them.

There I have said I would do it. Now to be strong.

As difficult as it is to let them go, sometimes we have to. Shrug!

Damn, so many ticks this season. I just pulled the fourth this season off my nape - all gotten in the garden. And the cats wonder why I keep them inside.

I would have 'liked' Glen's post except for the remark about ticks! I hate ticks. Don't you have fire ants there? Since they managed to establish here, I haven't picked up a tick in 3 years. Not seeing them on the animals either. But my poor hands have been miserable lately because they've found their way into the containers with daylilies. I'm upsizing and replenishing the soil in many of them. I can't always ascertain if they are there ahead of time. It only takes an instant for a hand to be covered with them. Then they are swarming in the new soil because that's where I've upended the container. Aggravating.

@needrain Donald, fire ants are here. The authorities noticed their presence quite early and could plot the ants spread from Brisbane's port to truck depots and warehouses throughout the city. The government has spent much money on fighting them but I think they are losing. They are not on the island so far. They have a devastating impact on native fauna, alas. Sadness.

I also meant to ask you about growing Primal Scream. I won't to grow it here. Does it act as a dormant in Texas? I was wondering if the subtropics would be too much for it.

Nice photos Glen, haven't seen a bloom here in several weeks. Like Texas, Alabama has had fire ants many years and were always a problem here until I started having my property sprayed. Nothing worse than picking up a pot full of ants.

Glen, it is strange, but I think once you start culling the ones that you are apprehensive about, you will find it easier to do each time. They are pretty, but with so many thousands of possibilities, another one will be there to take it's place Smiling

Yes, it goes dormant here. I grow all types, dor, sev, and eve and so far all seem to be growing about the same. There are specific cases of each type that seem a bit unhappy with my conditions, but they seem to be individual cases so I can't tell if their crankiness is due to the type. I'm hoping they adapt given more time. One thing about the dormants is they tend to be later in starting a lot of active growth than the others which begin more rapid growth earlier. That allows them to miss the almost inevitable hard late freeze that occurs. Mostly, the others catch back up but it's definitely an advantage early in the season. Interestingly to me also is that our warm winters, often for weeks, doesn't wake them up. The sev and eve types do tend to start growing and stop when it returns to cold. That back and forth during the winter months doesn't have the negative effect of the late hard freeze. I think it's a matter of the really active growth once the plant thinks the danger is past. A lot of plants get fooled in my area. Even indigenous natives get zapped here.

I composted four seedlings and two clumps of Brookwood Lee Causey today. They scored five for rust for me. Several fives still to go.

Some more blooms from today.

Debra said it best & I agree.

I have to say Moroccan Summer looks like a beautiful rose.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Ann, Moroccan Summer is doing well this year. I have had it for 8 years and I was thinking of composting it. I broke it up into 5 clumps and spread them throughout the garden. Two have decided to start singing (increase in tallness, number of fans and quality blooms). These are on a drier slope that doesn't get the early morning sun. Interesting.

Thunderstorms all day today. The rain dissolved parts of most blooms. I got some of the orange done.

My bitone Milanese Mango seedling (2012 106) is cute and pleasing to look upon.

CARROT CAKE is a splendid bloom.

A better bloom today on CORROBOREE DANCER.
Thumb of 2015-11-14/Gleni/6d2da3

Another seedling (2013 133). Unregistered Crikey!XCrikey! or, I think, [SeedlingX(ADMIRAL'S BRAID X WITCHES WINK)]X[SeedlingX(ADMIRAL'S BRAID X WITCHES WINK)]. Run away.
Thumb of 2015-11-14/Gleni/70f3d0

Which comes first, pollen or pod parent when writing the cross down?

Edited to put the numbers on the seedlings. I am quite capable of forgetting which one is which.

I thought the pod parent was always listed first, but I'm not sure that's standard throughout the plant world. Surely there is a botanical standard that applies to plants for this, though??
