There was a little frost last night in the outlying areas of the Scenic City. We were just on the edge here in Middle Valley. However, when I walked into the greenhouse this morning, everything was toasty and blooms open.
The first seedling to catch my eye was Seedling 1010 [Blue Desire X [(Seedling No. 9049 Robert W. Carr X Serenity Bay)]. This is another of the 9 month seedlings.

The next was Seedling No. 0038 (Wonder Of It All X Roses and Gold). This seedling first bloomed in the field in 2010, was potted and brought into the greenhouse for hybridizing.

Some of the named varieties that bloomed this morning.

H. 'Marilyn Morss Johnson' (Morss, 2007) Named to honor Mort's twin sister who passed away in 2011.
And last, but not least
H. 'Robert W. Carr' (Pickles, 2010). Named in honor of my friend, Dr. Robert W. Carr who passed away in October 2007.
That is it for today, my friends, hope you enjoyed the fruits of my labor.
Life is very, very good.
