Thumb of 2012-04-30/Paul2032/18bc64 I include this one because I hope the next blossoms will have the normal three standards. If it does it should be pretty.

Thumb of 2012-04-30/Paul2032/0b0272 I'm anxioua to see this one open. Maybe tomorrow?

I don't know if I'd have the heart to throw them out, It just seems so like a sin to toss a flower out, lol. I'd never make a good hybredizer, I'd have acres of culls growing,

Paul I like #7 the yellow one the standards look really nice on it I am finding out that the tighter they are the better they hold up to our weather here in Iowa I have some older varities that are favorites that just take a beating in a hard rain but some of the newer ones it does not seem to phase them at all and I think it is because they are breeding them with tighter standards which makes them last longer Hurray! I think you are doing a excellent job its got to be great to see the knew ones open.
