OH!

Cindee, It is so very good to hear from you again.

It looks like your spring show is a week or two ahead of mine, which is to be expected.

What a delightful sight, both your blooms and seeing you posting!!!

Yep, it was a rough winter here, too. It started out mild but then it hit with one major WUMPPPP!

The cold winter seemed to make a huge difference the the quality of blooms here in zone 8 (I think we may have been rezoned to 9). The blooms are drenched in color. My Exotica was opening last night and she is the color of molten copper. Can't wait to see her tonight!! My Lemon-lime is rich too. So many blooms!! Overload!

Yes, well I have been AWOL too long!

Ann, been thinking aboout you BIG TIME as I have another of your "Charisma Crosses" blooming...and this one is a real odd ball turned stunner! It started out fusing it's blooms, and unlike last years bloom (below) it's a double.
Last years bloom

From Amaryllis 2008-09

This year the bulb blooming(I have 6 or 7) is very different-more orange and it was a fused double-the first flowers here.

Newer blooms are quite pretty with a hint of white Picotee on the petals...what do you think?? Do you remember who you paired it with? I remember when you sent the seeds you said they were just a mix of Charisma crossings. No Matter, I just adore it!! I am calling it "Sassyann". it is producing so many offsets! Would you like one?? ((huggers))

Cindee...one of your seedlings looks like it's blooming size already (you sent seeds 2 years ago as I recall), I think it was FerrarixLimona (I have a tag, just don't recall)

Here are 4 of the 23 set to bloom...the early bloomers! There are about 4 others in bloom (Jewel, Red Lion, Garden Red, and Elvas)

My Exotica is so deeply colored and rich this year (it's just starting to open - (the fuzzy one closest to the front on the right - really just want to show off the copper color)...

...and the irises (I'm sort of new to them) have spread so much in one year. I think this color is amazing...just simple Louisiana iris (I think)...gift from coworker.

I'll send more when Exotica is open all the way.

Hi Cindee. The two bulblets you sent me, one of them the little pink by Lora bloomed, but the candy floss is just surviving although they are in the same pot. The seedlings are expected to bloom next year.

Welcome back! Missed ya girlfriend!!!

RE: Hold On To Your Hats!!!

Arif, greetings my dear dear friend!! So exciting to see Loras Pinkie in bud. Mine have not developed to bloom stage. I know not what I am doing wrong. they are lovely green and small still! You must show me the full bloom! As far as Candy Floss, I believe I have a sick bulb. It bloomed beautifully, once, but has shriveled and is is not very healthy looking. I am still nursing it. I guess it passed its sick nature on to the bulblet I sent to you, so sorry.

Waving at Alana and Maria~ ~ ~ Hi chickies!! Miss you too.
