I didn't go out till 11 this morning to take photos and of course not the best time to take pics. So here are a few new ones and some interesting pics on others.

CAUGHT RED HANDED

Interesting color changes in some blooms this morning.
OPEN DOOR had such a deep purple

and PREDICTION was so deep in the eye color also

now here is MAUI SUNRISE at 11am. All rolled back and not as deep as when I take early morning pics. But then again, I'm in full sun.

and finally BLUERIDGE BUTTERFLY was huge today but lighter.

Well that's it for a couple of days. Still have several more that haven't opened yet and the heat is coming back so I'm sure that will push them a bit.

Caught Red Handed looks like a winner! I can't wait for a clump shot of it. Again, I must get Kentucky Lucky. MUST! Might have to get Caught Red Handed too.

After seeing your Caught Red Handed, I'm wondering why I still have mine stunted and growing in a pot. If you can, show us a clump shot of that one. Your Kentucky Lucky is looking pretty. I'm surprised you already have those lates blooming. Open Door looks great, and more blue purple than mine ever does. Maui Sunset is my favorite one again! So vibrant and pretty!

I am also enjoying Caught Red Handed and am surprised at the intensity of color and high bud count.

RE: Sunday's openers

Lovely Sunday flowers! My favorites are Kentucky Lucky and Maui Sunrise!
My Carnival in Brazil had its second flower today, and also with a petal doing this. I wonder if it's because it's too big no strength to open? :)
Oh and I am envious of your Prediction! It used to be one of my favorites, but mine is having deformed flowers again this year! Half the buds opened on it already and only like 2-3 blooms looked normal. It's like it's trying to double and doesn't open at all at the same time. Is yours always looking good like in the picture?

Like the colors on Prediction a lot and look at the buds on Caught Red Handed. You'll have many more blooms to enjoy on that one......Maryl

RE: Sunday's openers

Prediction had no issues until we had high heat and then the cool down. It takes later in the morning before it opens fully on those cool mornings.
I've also noticed those plants with many buds tend to open better once the first few open and are eliminated.

I'm hoping CRH opens many on hotter days as taking pics later in the morning has me competing with the sun for good photos.

We've had an extraordinary amount of rain this year. At least 2 rainy days per week which I think is contributing to the intense colors. Add in the cooler than normal mornings.

All lovely! My picks are Kentucky Lucky and Maui Sunrise.

I love the color on Caught Red Handed, but Maui Sunrise is a real beauty too. Itza Pink Teddy is a fine clump and has really bloomed well hasn't it, Julia?
