March 28, 2002 - Welcome
I was quite surprised to find 97-VS-1 in bud this morning: 88-AX-3 x {danfordiae + 89-Q-3}. I hadn't noticed it previously because it was hiding off to the side under straw. By mid afternoon it had opened. At this point it's hard to say which of the pollen parents worked. Regardless, it along with the other three 88-AX hybrids, represent a significant milestone.

It's exciting, yet hard to imagine what beauties the future holds.

The trick in part is to make crosses today that five years from now I can hopefully say, yes I made the right choice. Three years ago I could only intercross 94-HW-1 and 94-GU-1. Today there are many possibilities, though some are already spoken for this year (e.g. 96-CD-1 and 98-NP-1 are already hybridized). One thing is clear, if at least initially, I want to stay away from blues & purples, then I should work with the "whites."

97-TH-1 has been open for a number of days, but it hadn't been fully open until now. The same is true with 95-BF-5.
