Yes, they are darker and look more vibrant. The light is prettier too, so that may help.

Beautiful! I have Mariposa Autumn as well. Mine hasn't bloomed yet. Thanks for posting a pic of yours. Do you get temps in the 20's Renee?

My Blatant had a beautiful healthy flower stalk and
my husband had to repair a window and accidentally broke the stalk off Christmas Eve. :( Its first bloom stalk for me. Ah well, next year...

Happy New Year!

I hate it when that happens!
We escaped with temps only into the high 30s. I still have a stalk of Plum Pretty Whiskers ready to bloom.

All we have blooming is a lot of the white stuff, so it is nice to see these. Thanks for sharing!
