In spite of our dry spell the flowers keep on. Today is day 43 with 0 rainfall.
Out taking pics this morning and these are among the many seedlings blooming.

Kid, we've have more rain that we know what to do with... Wish I could send you some!

Your seedlings are so beautiful despite the lack of moisture... I really like 1, 2, 5 and 6...

Beautiful seedlings Kid, Fred, and Jamie.
Kid, I love the last two best also.
Fred, Emma's Curls x Carnival in Oz is my favorite.
Jamie, love the Mayans' Dawn baby.
We could use rain too, just sprinkles here messing with
dabbing pollen.

Maybe I can get some together to post later this afternoon.
Gotta go hang tags on the crosses, and the kitchen floor
desperately needs mopping for now, but here's one I
particularly liked today.

This is one of a few successful attempts to get an edge on a patterned seedling, and this one has a double edge,
though tiny, so I'm happy.

That first one is stunning, Fred - for some reason it reminds me of a pansy's face! (The other two are nice, too.)

Nice color and watermark, Jamie.

What an interesting eye, Shirlee! It reminds me a little of a Rorschach pattern.

Howdy Kid! Wow, what you've done in the few years since we last visited! I'm impressed with your results. Congratulations. You must be all grown up now! Hurray!

So are you most focused on patterned eyes? Diploids? I'm curious about what you are seeing in the way of budcount and branching. Of course, with no rain I guess this might not even be a fair question to ask. Do I ever remember!

spunky, that first one is more delicious than berry pie with ice cream on it! Lovey dubby WARRIORS QUEST X WILD DREAMS


I've been more absent than present, not even lurking. But as seedling bloom is winding down I just had to take a peak at what others are getting. I'm still most focused on diploid party skirts, favoring Girly Girl as a parent because she just happens to be mine and has had the best performance in my garden all these years. Best scape, best bud count, longest bloom. My apologies for not making her more available to folks, but for anyone who can get some, you won't regret the results. Her one fault is that she sometimes is a bit shy about opening up fully, but if you cross with flatter faced ruffles, the kids are great. If Delicate Lady were a larger flower, I would use her more because she does have good branching and high bud count.

Oklahoma Hope continues to amaze me with beautiful seedlings. It's an illness to have as many unplanted seeds as I have and to not be able to STOP DABBING POLLEN! My initial work with Guidred on OH gave some that just really would have been nicer if planted on those high walled beds at Chesapeake to lean over the walkway. But the ones that stand their ground like I did just get more splendid every year.

So what are we to do when they just get better and better? I will have a registration this year but it's just a favor to a neighbor who wanted to give his daughter a graduation gift of her namesake, a seedling I gave him for his garden when I tore up the back yard next door and he was trying to figure out what was happening in the neighborhood! Don't pay it any mind. I wouldn't register it otherwise. For the most part this is just play time and enjoying the beautiful creations that are gifts from long ago packed into our favorite flower's genetics. What a Designer and Happy God we can come to know in the garden!

Shirlee what an amazing pattern --- looks like an ace of spades.

Everyone, the seedlings in these forums are simply incredible. I've really only just started, and I am inspired by all the posts.

Also, I just reviewed the postings for June Seedlings, and my congratulations to the whole bunch of you diggers and dabbers! Great work. Kid, I hope you have some names on your list that carry the Earthquake Theme! Some of the eyes look like they have been earthquake affected out there in the pasture!

The danger of not recognizing something as unique is ever present for you hybridizers. You see it in your seedling bed and it becomes old hat to you by the time you've got a decent clump. Try to isolate the features in early bloom that make your seedlings unique, and don't lose sight of those uniquenesses once it becomes what you see every year.

You're doing nice work, all of you.

Thank you, this is the first year for very many of mine to bloom. Everyone's looks nice. This is so fun I have 2 creams from color crosses. You just never know what you will get.

So true Teresa.

Things have advanced so much from when I was an active forum poster, I don't know if this will work, but I'll try to post a seedling that demonstrates the necessity of noting uniqueness. In a bed of so many of this color blend shading, here is unique. It's a reverse bitone.

The garden is getting too messy for photos with the
pink and blue flags, and the green crossing tags, but
here are a few that escaped all that. These are all
6 inches or more.

Jamie, that pattern does look like an ace of spades also.
Funny how these patterns can remind us of other things.
I posted one in June that looks just like it has a written word
on a sepal, or at least it does to me.

The pattern posted above is not a complicated one, but it is rather large for the bloom, so it shows up, more so in the garden though.

Shirlee, those are some wow edges and in zone 6. Alright Tersa way to go with show flower. Very nice Fred.
I like all 3. And Jamie with that ruffled edge Thumbs up
So Judy you really did not drop off the earth when you headed east. There is some serious Daylily growing around here and lots of pollen dabbing. While we really like patterns and watermarks we can't say there is a limited focus with us.

Hurray! we got rain today.
The long dry spell ended today.
Many of our plants are looking like these. We are having lots of pod loss since it has been so dry.
