"Who are YOU?" [said the Caterpillar."], although not to a beautiful group of african violets :-).

That's a lovely chimera and I probably should know it but I'm not up on those. (I bought my first this fall.)

RE: Winter Blooms

What beauties to brighten up dreary winter days!

RE: Winter Blooms

Awesome pictures. Can you name them for me? There are some there that I'd want on my want list...

Violet :)

RE: Winter Blooms

Hi everyone!!!!

Thank you!

If you hover your mouse over the pic, the name appears.

I think I'm going to put Sedona as my wallpaper. Really love the reds!

Diana- I love chimeras. I buy most of mine on eBay from David Thompson. Actually, I have one that he hybridized blooming now. It's called King David. The one above, Roulette, blooms almost non-stop. Lots of blooms.

RE: Winter Blooms

They are beautiful and I feel silly about not noticing the mousing.

Thank you for the tip on David Thompson. I've consciously tried to avoid chimeras but it's not because I don't like them. I've seen King David but never noticed the hybridizer or knew he sold on eBay. Thanks for the tip in case I decide on another.

(When I ordered from Lyon's, rather late last year, I just asked for an easy one. I have Sweet Tea and it's nice but more ordinary.)


RE: Winter Blooms

Wow these are so goregeous! Thank you so much for sharing. My flowers are all blooming but one but I do not have so many different colors!

RE: Winter Blooms

Yes, Diana, he is plant_maniac on eBay. I have Sweet Tea also. It's pretty, but I bought it because I really liked the name:)

Wakechick, I would love to see your photos:)

RE: Winter Blooms

Aha! I see the names!!!
Thank you!

Violet :D

RE: Winter Blooms

What gorgeous photos!
Thanks for sharing them


RE: Winter Blooms

I went to facebook and looked at your plants and made a couple comments. On the whole your plants are beautiful but a few of them don;t match the description in FC2. I hope you don't mind that I commented on them. They are all quite beautiful and your photography is excellent.

Princess K'Rei (Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses/Gifford) Single chimera white star/blue-striped pink patches. Medium green, quilted. Standard
I commented on this one because it is supposed to have blue in it. If you ever exhibited it in a show it would be questioned. Other than that it is a beautiful plant.
