Liz - if there was an issue with excessive posting I would have been thrown off this site a long time ago! Rolling on the floor laughing

Good start. Love Muppet!

A couple more cuties opened today.

Celtic Pixie




It had such a lovely start, but I wasn't impressed with how it looked when I got back from work in the afternoon. Sadly the falls started to curl. Bonnie, does your Celtic Pixie do that ever? There are more buds on the plant so I'll watch to see if they all do that or just the one. It wasn't even hot today Shrug!

Absolute Joy (??)


Thumb of 2017-05-04/Dachsylady86/5bb0c6

So I actually just picked this one up two days ago from the Agway by my house and although it says Absolute Joy on the marker and has the same colored beards and standard color, the falls are looking a lot more plicata than a thumb print of color with veining. It's very pretty though, especially the coral beards.

Liz, re Celtic Pixie, I find that the falls curl if the soil is dry. Some of the smaller ones do that. Some will open but not entirely and people will cull them not knowing they need a drink. Some will open beautifully and before the day is over look like they need to relax. I find that if I give them a drink they open back up and last longer. (right now mine are gasping for air). Give it a try.

Robin, good I.D. on FC. Smiling

My soil was super dry and the flowers looked too damaged to post. It could have been cold too. I enjoy even seeing pictures of flowers I own blooming elsewhere. I watered last night.

Our soil is getting pretty dry also, Niki, and this heat is taking its toll on the blossoms. Grumbling

Thank you for the advice Bonnie. It did rain here most of the week so in this case I'm not sure the soil is dry. There are a few new blooms that look more normal and have lasted all day in good form so it could have been a weird one in general. I'll post more pics tonight!

Sorry to hear that you didn't get nice shots to post this year Niki. Will you take some more pics at Mid-America though?? Crossing Fingers!

Some are lovely, but the sudden heat in the 80s is taking its toll. I just got caught up on these threads. I decided to post to the database. I've been busy with my parents' visit. Plans had to be altered too. I still plan to squeeze in visits to Salem.
