Gerry Hoek is really that light Pooch. It really is 5"? I have that one NOID that is closer than anything else you have.

Thanks Double F

Ha! Al- the real GERRY HOEK! DO YOU SEE IT???? I will never let you live this tuber down LOL! But I am telling you, even though it's huge, I am enjoying your fake Gerry Hoek II. The color is much more enjoyable than the real deal. I think the buds of yours are bigger than the real Gerry. Photos to follow because...........I got a camera cord to USB port dealy bobber!

Frenzy, I am taking notes on many of your beautiful photos. Crichton Honey, Bashful, Tempest, Smarty Pants.... so many of them. And Maarn is gorgeous. Lenjo, I watered Maarn again last night and there wasn't only the first discovered rodent hole, but another endless hole on the other side of where the tubers would be, if dug. It has buds and has gained height, so I think it will be okay, but I'm dying to see how many chew holes are in those tubers. Of all the flowers to raid, why did they choose Maarn?

Thanks again FF for the wonderful job taking photos. Makes me want to make the drive to Swan Island myself...

FF, What did you think of Fire Magic? Personally it is another of my favs. The color has a lot of depth. I have three plants of it and probably 4 or 5 of Bubble Gum. It is quite lovely too. And I love Gerry Hoek but I just can't seem to manage to keep her going another year. I planted two but neither came up. She was pretty wimpy. Brian Ray is very similar to Wicky Woo but the purple is a bit lighter, I think.

I wanted to get to Swan Island today but my daughter and hubby are putting a new roof on their house and that is where we spent our day. It was pretty warm too. I hope to get there soon.

Glad everyone is enjoying the pics so much! I have a bit more time this evening, so I'll put some more on the thread.

Lenjo, I thought that FIRE MAGIC was wonderful! The color is amazing and the form doesn't get much better than that! I loved the color on BUBBLE GUM.

Back to the fun! Here's STELLA.
