Everyone seems to have some sort of bloom in spite of their weather.  
Yesterday was the first sunny day - with a strong  very cool wind, after many days of 
heavy rains.  I  walked around the garden and not a single stalk,bud - 
nothing -- and I have  a number of SDBs - -- was popping up.  This is the first year 
that  my weeping cherry blossoms have come and gone without my being able to 
appreciate its loveliness  but for a hasty glimpse from the sheltered back 
door. My Yoshino cherry's pale pink blossoms have turned white without my seeing 
them, and they are beginning to fall!  Usually I am out in the garden, 
enjoying that beautiful tree!.  It is enormous and too beautiful to have missed -- 
but that rain had my sump-pumps  working  away!  The forsythia in my neighbor's  
yard is in bloom - but I am afraid that my Loripetulum (sp? - but at least 
I'm not calling it Laura Petalum, Waltah!) has been too badly winter-burned -- 
and  they are so beautiful -- and difficult to find here.  I like it better 
than azaleas.  Enuf  of my sad story (added to the fact the Drs.  have said I 
can't fly, so no National))  So back to hunting for the material for those dumb 
taxes!  Rosalie nr Baltimore, Md., USA  Is it zone 7?!  ryfigge@aol.com
