Last year, my daughter and I planted a bunch of seeds that we had harvested the year before. With the exception of a seedpod from an El Desperado pod and some seeds from Robbobeli (Lady Elizabeth), I didn't know what I would get.

So to my surprise, I had a single yearling fan send up a scape on June 21!

This morning, Seedling 16-4 gave me her first blossom! :)

First thing this morning: 58 degrees and misty

Congratulations! It's very pretty considering the weather today!

I'm going to have to have a talking to with my 2016 seedlings. They aren't even trying to throw up a scape! I even have 2015 seedlings that aren't going to bloom this year. They need to shape up! Hilarious!

Congratulations...

...and so it begins... Rolling on the floor laughing

(There is nothing quite like the excitement of rushing out every season to see maiden bloom on the new seedlings.)
It's daylily season!
