I thought I would show you a trait I have been working on for years now. You might say why, but I am always looking for something different - that is what hybridizing is all about after all. I did win the grand prize at the Canadian Prairie Lily Socity Lily Show with the lily in the second photo.

Wow, love that second one! Looks like you're moving toward trumpet-shaped asiatics.

WelI all those are quite nice, but don't know.... those little pink ones in the lower right background of that second pic have a higher cute factor Whistling .

Did that first pic's flower have Fred's Baby Pink Bells in its background?

I didn't notice that one. Buckets of cute! Now I think the whole pic looks like a swarm of white flying saucers invading cute-world! Blinking

I love your wit and imagination, Della. If you write poetry or pros, they must be like gold. nodding
If you don't write, then you really ought to!

The seedlings in the first photo do have Baby Pink Bells (photo below) as one of the parents. The rest of the seedlings shown do not. The seedling in the second photo predates Baby Pink Bells and I have used it fairly often.
I have found that I don't often get seed using Baby Pink Bells and if I do and some with more or less this form they do not last in the garden, but maybe I just haven't found the right cross yet.
