The TB's are starting to pop, and that means the Burseen's are a bloomin'!

Thumb of 2016-04-21/Lestv/b678b4

So PLEASE humor me and post all the Burseen blooms you have this year right here on this thread. I would like to get a good collection posted to show the breadth and scope of his talents.

(Yep, even if you posted elsewhere, post them here too). There are hundreds of them out there. Let's see them.

Yesterday when I posted Infernal Fire in Bloom Season 2016, I said it won the first open in my garden by two falls.

Stolen Identity had only one fall open at the time - looks like it was testing the air before opening:

I think there are seven blooms about now. This one did well it's first year, but has really improved in it's second year! Hurray!

Oh and some beard, no?

Leslie, I think the only Burseen I have had long enough for it to bloom is Police Stories. And soon you will have it, too. Big Grin
