Hi Coleen,

<<here's a few dwarfs to kick off.>>
Looking forward to a parade of blooms from your garden.  It's always a enjoyable time.
Still planting here, so it's good to come in and open the computer to fresh blooms.   Mike S., too.

This year the dwarfs have beaten the PCIs to open.
We've had the coldest Sept for about 20 years. Daily max were mostly
about 12oC, suddenly it's warmed up to the low 20s and everything is
heading. I expect bud count to be fairly low this year with the sudden
weather change.

Not sure how much bloom I'll get this year, as everything has been
transplanted from our old place and many sat in paper bags for several
plants before replanting. I know I won't get any seedling bloom this
year. Next year should be good. Not will there be all my seedling I
bought over from our old place, but I've also got 2 years worth of
seedlings in pots to plant out.

So here's a few dwarfs to kick off.
