Look What I Found This Morning
I could hardly believe it when I started looking around this a.m. I have quite a few photos, so I will do two posts, one now and one later. First, Friday morning we were surprised to have a very nice little storm come through, and when it was over, we had 1.5 inches of rain. No doubt it really boosted up all our plants, which is a good thing indeed. We will finish July with 4.23 inches of rain, a real godsend. Going into the hottest and usually driest part of the year, this is wonderful, for now really hot temps are predicted for the rest of the week with no rain. Now, with no further ado, on to the pics.

Julianna Lynn--this is the last flower, unless we get some more surprise scapes, which has been happening lately. I am not counting on it.
Starstruck--this was a shocker, for I had totally overlooked seeing this one. It's blooming on a proliferation my husband rooted a couple of year ago.
Smoky Mountain Autumn--another one I wasn't paying attention to. This is on a proliferation my husband rooted about three years ago. We didn't think this prolif would take, but this year, it decided it wanted to live, and we are so glad it did. We will probably move it this fall to join its mother.
"Bold Tiger Lookalike" clump shot. This one continually surprises us by popping more scapes. It is definitely a keeper. I am posting a single, double, and triple of this one.
Miss Victoria has really come to life. This one has 13 scapes on it, which you might be able to see in the next picture.
I can see one scape has bloomed out, but there should be 12 more to go.
When I was doing the Miss Victoria pics, I happened to look way down in the foliage and look what I found--a little visitor!
My "Mom's Seedling" has also put up numerous rebloom scapes. We have a huge number of these plants, all grown from proliferations,
"Mom's Seedling" Twins--the sun backlit these this morning.
"Jean's Joyful Noise" looking pretty, and another one putting up more scapes.
There are more, but I must stop and do some other things, so this p.m. I will post the last of the group of photos. Avedon
