A new season begins

Because of super low outside temperatures for such a long period of time this winter, to save on the heating bill I set the greenhouse heat at 50 degrees at night and 55 daytime instead of my normal 60 and 65. The foliage is even more lush than usual, but the bloom has lagged by 10-14 days - getting antsy:-)

This is seedling 4613 blooming today. Super tall, about 7", with 6 way branching (greenhouse effect of course) I kept it in the greenhouse to use for breeding this year. Out of two chalky eyed parents. Note echo in the eye. I didn't see that as much last year - second picture - I think the cooler temps show off the echoes better.
