Tantara 4 standards 5 falls. The dogs broke it off before I could get more good pictures so this will have to do.

That is usually caused by cold when the buds are forming unless you have one which is prone to that sort of thing.

Sheldon Butt is a creamy yellow bloom with a light blue beard. Looks like the beard was in for a dye job and the color ran.

Now I have never seen one bleed color that isn't the usual fall or standard color before. Interesting one Bonnie!

To bad the pink spot isn't right in the center. That would be really cool.

Oh my. All I have gotten this year are the crinkled into a twisted mass type chimeras. Some of these are oddly beautiful. Not sure I include Bahama Blues though..... Hilarious!

IB Baby Blue Marine has put up quite a few bloom stalks but one is different. The little buds were a different color so I watched it to see what was wrong.

Here is what opened this morning

I like this little super freak. The lines are distinct and the form, such as it is, is symmetrical.

I have a bloom like this on Art School that I received in November. It's still in a pot. Thumbs down If it's not raining tomorrow I'll try to take a picture. All my other Art School's are blooming normal.
