As most of you know, I tend to make out like a bandit when it comes to my local AIS club picnics. This year I tried hard to limit myself and was sort of successful. I only got 5 new cultivars. ALL of the Tasco introductions!!!!!!!

Here are my 2017 "additions":

Dark Storm

Frosty Spirit

Visual Pleasure

First Prize

The last one was one I had missed out on last year:

Under My Spell


I told the group that I should pick last as I picked first. The president said they would pick youngest to oldest. I was the youngest (Our newest member from 3 years ago is my age, but she has me by three months)

First Prize

I got most of those this year Big Grin But if that's all you got, you behaved yourself much better than I did at our picnic.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
