Well, Donald  ---  It really is a strange year.  The last handful of TBs in 
my home gardens are blooming their last, when here comes another stalk of 
STEALTH FIGHTER, which has been blooming for a month!  Then, as I head for 
the house mumbling about that, what do I see but SDB sdlg 20A9 about to 
open!  Okay, I knew it was a rebloomer, but in the fall, not now!  CAREFREE 
DAYS is a mid-late bloomer here, but its look-alike, LINGERING TOUCH,  has 
been taking curtain call after curtain call here and will be, along with 
LAVENDER INTERLUDE,  the last thing blooming in the garden.  --  Griff

Out of the ruins of the hail, here  comes a stalk.  In this case it's
Griff's CAREFREE DAYS.  Experience tells me that under my conditions and
high temps, it will dry up.  So far, though, it's looking good.  This stalks
would be well past bloom in a normal year, so it qualifies as repeat bloom.
The stalk is from an increase on the rhizome, so I think it's mine and not
something set under Griff's growing conditions.  I sure hope his are more
congenial than mine.
