    Here are some of this years seedlings, most from your seeds Wylie ;)
    002.JPG
    Ones that are doing exceptionally well(and are all yours Wylie) are:
    Joy of Life seedling x (Lighter than Air x Catcher in the Eye) really excited about this one :hapydancsmil:
    Blue Eyed Bandit x Golden Tentacles
    Eder x Spacecoast Sea Shells, and this one :dancy:
    They all look good though:)
    When the weather turns, and there's room I'll move them all to the greenhouse for the winter, I know I know maybe being to much of a fussy mum but can't risk them outside their first winter, they ll be planted out next spring.

      They look like they are really doing great.:wow: Too bad I'll see Eder 0084 X Spc Coast Sea Shells before you do :heehee: - remember I sent you the first pod, but kept the second of the same cross.

          Only 40 more pods left to ripen, and then I can figure out what I want to start next year. But some of those pods are large, so no telling how many seeds.:rolleyespink:
          There can be big differences in a group - so you will still have surprises.:spinning:

            Here are some of my seedlings that were started in January and planted out in April. For reference, the ruler is 21" tall.

              Hi Wylie

              looking good do you plant in the re-used bottles to help with watering ?

                You're right - it helps with watering, but it also keeps the cats from digging them up. They use the space between for digging and sleeping. Also if the weeds get a little high, I know the plant is inside the area.

                    The 2nd best seedling of the cross Sybil's Blues x Water Drops is open today. It lacks the banding of the best one, but still a keeper.
                    Sybil\'s Blues x Water Drops.JPG
                    Then there is a Dark Reflection sdlg. I crossed this last year with a Joy of Life sdlg double, and it's one of those big new seedlings growing.
                    Dark Reflection sdlg.JPG
                    And one of the groups that is rarely out of bloom - Wild Horses x Heavy Metal. This one has large 7" flowers, and look at all the buds.

                        I like Lacy Doily, but it doesn't perform as well for me.:frown: It is supposed to rebloom, but I only get it once. I have a set of seedlings growing with it as a parent for next year.
                        Today I have a FFO! This is Better Lucky Than Good x Ice Cream Emperor:
                        Better Lucky Than Good x Ice Cream Emperor.JPG
                        It looks similar to Better Lucky Than Good x Facepaint, but is a different shade of red, one that really stands out.

                          Another FFO, similar to its sibling. Leroy x President Ronald Reagan:
                          Leroy x President Ronald Reagan.JPG
                          I am also getting 6" flowers on South Pacific x Talladega:
                          South Pacific x Talladega.JPG And just because it is a good photo of one of my favourites - Wild Horses x Heavy Metal:

                            I had another FFO today. This shows signs of being pinched. Sdlg BNR/A#59 (I go by the reference number when it doesn't look right. This is supposed to be from [(Amethyst Reflections x Unk) x Unk] but doesn't look close to it):
                            BNR A#59.JPG
                            Another that doesn't look right is BLR#7. It is supposed to be Dragon Knife x Briar Patch, but is way off from either parent.
                            100_7582.JPG
                            It really is a bright, bright orange with a fancy edge.
                            Palace Garden Beauty is showing off:
                            Palace Garden Beauty.JPG
                            Evermore Lights x Spiny Sea Urchin is an Early Early type that doesn't open very well that early. Fortunately it reblooms and opens all the way:
                            Evermore Lights x Spiney Sea Urchin.JPG
                            I know I just posted a photo of Wild Horses x Heavy Metal with 3 flowers, but it keeps getting better and today there are 7 open at once (guess what the wallpaper on my computer is now):

                              I am still getting several flowers every day. I was thinking of dividing Carpathian Cavalier, but it has sent up a scape so that job will be put off a little. With only 20 seed pods to go, I have collected 170 bags of seeds.
                              One of the flowers reblooming is Country Pride x New Swirls. DIP, 5" across, a rich red with darker eyezone.

                              Of course there are the old favourites - Spacecoast Sea Shells:
