I was out very early this morning hoping to just get the sunrise coming up and not have intense sun showing on the blooms. We have a cool breeze blowing today. By cool, I mean no humidity. I still have more to finish loading but here are some to show from today and finishing up the Thursday/Friday ones. Hope you enjoy.
AZTEC HEADDRESS - this morning
BLACK FALCON RITUAL - FFO, seems to do okay.
DESERT SHORE - second opening. The pinkish tinge is from the sunrise shining on the bloom.
FOREVER RED - second opening
JAMAICAN LOVE - as good as it is going to get I guess this year. Disappointed.
ED BROWN - FFO. I don't seem to have a problem with EB surviving here as I know others do.
FANCY FACE - opened yesterday.
STEALTH BOMBER - FFO and also one of the buds that was "sunburned". I'll see what the next ones look like that weren't affected. Jury is still out.
ONE TWO KANGAROO - opened yesterday and today. Deeper in color than in past years.
SOCIAL GRACES - big disappointment for me this year. Very small blooms, won't open correctly. As good as I think it will get this year.
SOUL ON FIRE - FFO. Always a champ here.
WISEST OF WIZARDS - this is about the 7th or 8th opening and this is as good as it gets. Another disappointment.
WATCHYL MOONBEAM - doing its things. I wasn't crazy about the color as I expected cream to whitest but definitely this is lemony to greenish color.
KENTUCKY LUCKY - second opening this morning
FREEDOM'S TRIUMPH - second opening this morning
LAVENDER CREAM CASCADES - opening again this morning.
HOT TAMALES AND RED HOTS - Yesterday - opened again today but only a single. Time to cut the scape and let it rest.
That is it for today.
