Apr 3, 2002 - Welcome
As you can see, we did get the snow the weatherman had been predicting. Much of it melted by the end of the day, but there were large flakes coming down late tonight; however it didn't amount to much.


Apr 1, 2002
Wonders never cease! 96-BN-3 bloomed today for the first time - another gorgeous F2 sxd hybrid.

The answer to the 96-CD-1 mystery has been solved. 96-CD-1 is actually a backcross to danfordiae. This pattern hadn't show up previously. Effectively it's like taking 96-BN-1 and removing almost all blue (spotting still show on the fall). 96-BN-3 doesn't go quite as far, since some blue is left in its style arms.

The weather hasn't been cooperating as much as I would have hoped. Temperatures continue at or below normal. Today was bitterly cold, and 5 cm of snow is promised overnight. I did manage to get some hybridizing done, but my hands got lethargic after a little while. Sunday had been a much nicer day, and I managed to make quite a few crosses.

I haven't taken quite as many pictures as I had hoped. When the weather is reasonable my main goal is hybridizing. I had intended to take time off work while the Retics were in bloom, but so far there haven't been any nice enough days to do so. On other days, like today I took a fair number of pictures, but the sun was hiding behind clouds much of the time.
