Re: [IGSROBIN] spring
Spring indeed! We have it down here from about march 31 to april 10.
However, it is noticeable. All the scenteds, hybrid and species, have gone
into hurry up mode and are blooming. The sarcocaulon have all done their
tissue paper bloom thing, and I am waiting to see if they set seed. Dug new
beds for the big order of scenteds from Robin P., and planted the space
between the pool retaining wall and the seawall with cuttings rooted last
month. Odd, seeing pels growing up to the mangroves, but they like it. The
calendula are blommed out, the cosmos replacements are in, and the
sunflowers are sprouting, particularly under the bird feeder. Other than
the drought for the last 120 days, it is altogether an excellent spring.
