>> Sherry,

>> bitter temps with wind chills more appropriate for January. As far as
>> bloom goes, a very few of the earliest bloomers may have been open in
>> Lincoln. I have hundreds of SDB stalks showing- which will likely be

>> stalks.
>> Tonight is our last night in the teens. So we should know fairly soon.
>> The little guys are tough though and I suspect there will still be bloom
>> by convention time. As with every one around the country- we were

>> which looks much like scorch.
>> Will let you know what happens as it warms up a bit.
>> I am so very sorry to hear of the terrible times being had by all of you
>> to our east and south. It is painful to think of all of the devastation.
>> Well- maybe 2007 will be a rebloom season to remember!
>> Robin Shadlow
