She showed a lot of interest in these:
YANKEE CHARM, by Sikes, 1991, Mid, 17"x5"
(VT) FOGGY DEW, type 1, by the Darrow family, unregistered. Late, 28" x 5" (It's already blooming, though not as tall as it should be, because I planted it only last year. It represents one of my cats, "Fog"!)
SPIDER MIRACLE, by Hendricks, 1987, Midseason, 32"x 8.5" (This one is a polytepal. That is, an occasional anomaly of 4 petals plus 4 sepals, totaling 8 instead of the usual 6. This particular bloom had passed by the time she saw my gardens, but I have this photo of Spider Miracle in my files.)
WICKED WITCH, by Moldovan, 1980, Mid-Late, 24" x 6" (It's actually a fair bit darker than this pic shows. Nice, rich, dark red/near black. Might have been too sunny that day for photography. Sometimes color is truer on overcast days, but I can't just wait for that.)
PAPOOSE, by Kraus, 1956, Late, 18" in height. Bloom width not given, because that was not required when registering the old ones. It's a cute, small bloom, though! About 3" or so across. I do believe this photo is sideways! The anthers should be curling upward, not sideways! OK, so ... cock your head to your left....
OK, there were several more that she admired, and I think she truly liked all she saw blooming that day. Many plants had taken the day off, as it were... had buds, but none open that day. I won't be digging/dividing all of these this summer -- and possibly some not even next year -- but she is welcome to all of them, eventually. I'll send her a few plants later this month, and more in the spring. Then we'll see what needs division, and when. By then, she will have visited again, I hope, perhaps a different part of the summer. Then she'll see different plants in bloom!
