A drop-by..

Hello, o peoples of the African Violet board!

Long time, no post-at.. Life/move to another state/upcoming wedding had temporarily pulled me away from the wonderful world of AV's... but not for long!

Recent acquisitions come from a greenhouse that actually had a really, really nice batch of partially-named african violets. (Playful spectrum, a bunch of Rob's varieties, and splatter cake, among others) Sadly, the significant other insisted that we had no more room for plants (pssh. When's that ever true?), and only 3 got bought.

These are the three.

I know there's a code about not identifying things from pictures, because things may not be as they seem, and yet.. it's not as though I'd be going into the hybridizing business.

The little blue and white one looks exactly like Rob's Loose Noodle, the little pink one's looking similar to Rob's Mad Cat, but without the blue flecks on the flowers.

The large white one actually has faint blue flecks on the flowers, and with the unusual foliage to boot.. Any thoughts on what that one might be?
