Re: self-sowers

Sorry, Zem, Four O'Clocks (Mirabilis jalapa), not Nicandra (SHOO-FLY;APPLE
OF PERU;APPLE OF SODOM;PERUVIAN BLUEBELL)  Someone sent me several packages
a couple of years ago - yellow, pink, and pink/white striped.  Thought it
was you.
Balsam, yeah, I need to grow that next year.

I worked outside much of yesterday and will probably be indoors much of
today housecleaning and baking, so will turn A/C on.  We're having my
niece's BD party here tomorrow, though today is her actual BD.  The rain
last night sorta cranked up the humidity around here.
