"Who are YOU?" [said the Caterpillar."], although not to a beautiful group of african violets :-).

That's a lovely chimera and I probably should know it but I'm not up on those. (I bought my first this fall.)

Hi everyone!!!!

Thank you!

If you hover your mouse over the pic, the name appears.

I think I'm going to put Sedona as my wallpaper. Really love the reds!

Diana- I love chimeras. I buy most of mine on eBay from David Thompson. Actually, I have one that he hybridized blooming now. It's called King David. The one above, Roulette, blooms almost non-stop. Lots of blooms.

They are beautiful and I feel silly about not noticing the mousing.

Thank you for the tip on David Thompson. I've consciously tried to avoid chimeras but it's not because I don't like them. I've seen King David but never noticed the hybridizer or knew he sold on eBay. Thanks for the tip in case I decide on another.

(When I ordered from Lyon's, rather late last year, I just asked for an easy one. I have Sweet Tea and it's nice but more ordinary.)

Yes, Diana, he is plant_maniac on eBay. I have Sweet Tea also. It's pretty, but I bought it because I really liked the name:)

Wakechick, I would love to see your photos:)

HI,
I went to facebook and looked at your plants and made a couple comments. On the whole your plants are beautiful but a few of them don;t match the description in FC2. I hope you don't mind that I commented on them. They are all quite beautiful and your photography is excellent.

Princess K'Rei (Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses/Gifford) Single chimera white star/blue-striped pink patches. Medium green, quilted. Standard
I commented on this one because it is supposed to have blue in it. If you ever exhibited it in a show it would be questioned. Other than that it is a beautiful plant.
