Aitken's is a real danger to anyone who wants MDB's, SDB's, IB's and BB's. All those Marky Smith beauties as well as Aitken's own.

Had 6 more opening this morning. Will try to get them photographed and posted tonight, though I have some hellebore and Heucherella to plant too.

Aitken created Tiny Beacon and it's sibling Boink but hasn't been carrying Boink anymore. Shame because it is a cutie too.

My mistake! He has Boink again.....but...... it is sold out.

Bonnie - I like the look of Bennett's Legacy. He used to have Bennett's Star but it isn't listed this year.

Bennett's Star bloomed for me this spring. Its blooms lasted over a week. Bennett's Legacy did not put up a bloom stalk but is doing o.k. Smiling

That is a cute one Gabe.

I am dreading this rain since it has possible high winds and hail. I have 3 dwarfs just opening that are new to me and I am afraid they will be mush before I can see them. A couple only have one bloom. Crossing Fingers! for rain with none of the rest.

We had tornado watches last night. The next three days there are supposed to be freezing temps at night. I have 7 iris germanica buds and several SDBs that may freeze. One peony almost ready to bloom....must cover it up. Not much I cam do about the daffodils, tulips and other bloomers.

Jane, we are getting the freeze warnings too. Hope it won't be so severe. Sad
