Yes, it's true, I now have blooms. Not one, not two, but 5 blooms on 3 different brugs. I am in heaven!!! How will I stand it til they open??? Oh, the agony, this is worse than not having any, because I'm a very very impatient person!!! If you don't see me over the next however many days they take to open, I'll be in my chair with my camera in hand:)

I know that 5 blooms certainly isn't what they will be like next year, but I'm thrilled! One of them you sent to me as a surprise, so I'll be counting on you to identify her:)

Tig, I have that same disease...wife gets mad at me as every few hours I go out side to check on new blooms when I get a new flower about to bloom for the first time...Of course when I wake up in the middle of the night...take a stroll outside to smell them and stay gone for hours...hoping they change colors before my eyes or unravel just a bit more...ahh, and the fragrance...Seedlings give a much deserved surprise as well and whats nice is you know your the only one with that hybrid when it comes up from seed.
