    A "First", a "Mini" and 2 "Newbies&

    My first Daylily of the year! And there's lots of buds on it.

    My miniature rose (so far the only rose I haven't managed to kill). I promised Philip I'd post a photo of it.

    And two new plants from seeds that Theodoros sent me.

    I have two of them and have nicknamed them "Big Pink".

    And the other one...

    Ohhhh! A first......hint, hint. Can I put it in the Baseline Database? Did it flower last year? What makes the nice looking rose a miniature, the plant size or the flower size? Both maybe? I have one rose bush. I have moved it twice and still have not killed it. It doesn't even get bugs, like Japanese beetles. Do you spray for bugs?

    Thanks Philip. I was really happy to have some of them sprout and can't wait until they grow up and bloom so I can tell people that they came from Greece!

    Jerry... Of course the "Double Down" can be added to the Database. I'm gonna have to remember it as the other Daylilies bloom. And yes it bloomed last year. I'd have to go back through photos to see when.
    And here's a photo showing the size of the mini-rose.

    I guess it's a mini because both the plant and the flowers are much smaller than a typical rose.
    I only spray for bugs when I see them(dishsoap and veggie oil spray). I don't recall having to spray the mini-rose last year.

    Philip... here's a photo from this past November that shows it "completely". I never thought of taking a cutting from it. Hmmmm...

    Great picture Cheryl,..it looks in tip top condition,..yes think about a cutting,..even if you only take a small one and stick it in water until it roots,..the easy way lol,..its always nice to have a duplicate bush just in case of accidents.
