Re: TB: First Flower of 06

You are'nt kidding it's a strange year!   My yard is at peak bloom, my rebloomers are going down hill, my LAs are almost at peak, and my spurias are in bloom.   All this and our show is still a week and a half away.   I hope someone around here still has
  something in bloom the 23rd.   Never since I have been growing spurias have any of them bloomed in early April until this year.   Usually the first two or three open just in time for our show.   This may not be global warming, but I would surely like to see 
  a milder, wetter spring back again.
                                                                Pat in very warm, windy Dallas

all are showing color! Meantime, the SDBs WHAT, AGAIN?, PLUM WINE and JEWEL 
BABY have been blooming for a week. Paul Hill's SWEETHEARTS AGAIN, a pretty 
little thing, opened overnight in the rain. About a dozen new SDB seedlings 
have opened, and two Intermediate seedlings are blooming. I believe I am 
going to have some TBs in bloom before all the SDBs have opened. Wild, 
wild, wild! -- Griff

zone 7 in Virginia, where overnight and morning rain was followed by a sunny 
afternoon, and now we're being lashed by a thunderstorm. Can't complain 
about the rain, though.
