Ron asked me to show some of my plants, albeit small and not yet fully developed except a few, so here I go. I hope they will get better as the years go by.
From left to right:
Victoria Golden Bells
Pride of Winterhaven
Fishbone (thanks, Phil)
Plaid Oak (thanks, Phil)
Flamingo (thanks, Keith)
Sturrock's Pink Veitchii (thanks, Jeff)
Next are, left to right:
Gloriosa (thanks, Ron)

Sybil Griffin (thanks, Marie)
Nervia- very slow grower, but great colors
Van Buren (thanks, Lamar)
Sorry for the sideways photos. Scott, someday will you teach me how to turn them right side up?
Mona Lisa (thanks, Ricky)
General Marshall (thanks, Mike)
I think my photos are overexposed a bit. Colors look different and a little washed out. I think my flash was going. I need to figure out how to turn it off when I don't want it. Where is that manual? Hmmmm.....
Nice collection and they are looking so healthy and happy. You are doing a great job; thanks for sharing.
Everything looks great! All of your crotons look like they're in perfect lighting. Love your Flamingo.
Thanks, Plant Nut and Marie! Ha ha, Marie, you know I worry about lighting. Thanks you two for the pat on the back. Ana
Here is another photo I took Labor Day morning.
Ana - Holy Moly! What are you doing to that Gloriosa? It never looked that good in the moose land.
... and another.
Ana - your General Marshall looks very happy. Should be getting some nice coloring on it this month.
Here is the last one from Labor Day morning.
Ana - are you interested on testing your eye on the Moose photos?
Ron, I suspected you were trying to bait me. You know, I've been scared to try because I'll never match my last score! I keep telling myself I'm not proud, so I should try. I am crazy busy the next couple of days, but if you let me know which are the unknowns (take them out of the picture) I will try as soon as I have time. I don't have time to spend poring over unknowns that just don't have a right answer though. Ana
Ana - you are good to go. There are no unknowns posted by me in this thread.
Alright, here I go. I'm feeling pretty good about my score this time. I hope I'm not jinxing myself.
