Thursday's Offerings

It's beautiful out and sunny -- too sunny for more pics, so I don't have many.

ELIZABETH PEACOCK was a Hanson 2013 Fall intro that has a beautiful blue eye:

JOHN KARL SEAGER, an older Hanson, with CARNIVAL KNOWLEDGE in the background:

ANATOMY OF CHANGE with some pinching for Debra:

ROAD TO SAMARKAND:

STEALTH BOMBER, liking its relocation:

I guess I'm all Hansons today. That seems to be happening more and more!

ELIZABETH PEACOCK has great colors, and I like that thin white edge. ANATOMY of CHANGE looks fabulous! I like the colors and the pinching on yours. Mine nearly died in a pot over the winter and did not put up any scapes this season. I always love the color of JOHN KARL SEAGER. What a wonderful blue orchid it is! I've bought that one a couple of times without success. The first time the plant sent was actually Roaring Fork and the second time the plant died in a pot over the winter.

Stealth Bomber is stunning. I'm discovering more and more that I really really like Hanson's. Great colors and shapes.

There is nothing wrong being mostly Hansons. :-)

I found if the first couple of blooms left the scapes on STEALTH BOMBER, it appeared to open better here. I think it just got too top heavy in buds this year.

ROAD TO SAMARKAN looks perfect.

Elizabeth Peacock seems to be a winner. But everything here seems to have great substance and clear color.

Elizabeth Peacock is lovely. Yeah, nothing wrong with Hansens, making me wish I had more.

Thanks, everyone. I can't wait to see what EP does after another year in the garden.
