The frost to some degree, but not the drought.  Like the naturalized 
grape hyacinths and other things, many will simply skip bloom this 
year.  I've never seen the muscari do that before, but not a single 
bloom this year.  That's drought, though, not freeze.  Some of those 
seedlings have bloom stalks, shorter than usual and not as many 
buds.  Typical of what I'm seeing.  Still some blasted buds showing 
up.  A combination of the drought and late freezes, I expect.

No, but I read the archives daily and don't miss many posts.  I 
remember your grasshopper post.  I have mantis here - huge ones - 
but they get badly outnumbered by the hoppers.  Maybe that's how 
they get so big.

Interesting about the color changes.  Sooner or later I'm bound to 
see it in my seedlings, just hasn't happened yet.  Some things like 
a lot of variation in color depending on the weather conditions and 
where they are growing.  Most things don't show that much in color, 
but branching,bud count and height are extremely variable here from 
season to season.  This year the bloom sequence is weird as well.

Rebloom would be wonderful, but if I ever had a seedling that would 
do it I wouldn't likely ever know it.
