Two of my passions are African Violets and wild Mustang horses. My hope is to blog about both here... the violets that I'm growing (or lusting after!) and the wild Mustangs that I visit at Sand Wash Basin, CO when I can.

Judie's Satin Doll
This is Judie's Satin Doll. It was hybridized by a local woman and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I've had this plant for 1 1/2 years and it's a tough one in order for it to have survived the heat and the cold that it was subjected to! It finally bloomed for me back in June. One blossom but it was enough to remind me of how beautiful she is. That blossom faded and then it bloomed again. This time there are many more blossoms... the pollen on the petals aren't due to any bugs. This one is ripe for hybridizing if I had something I wanted to cross with it!
