<<late freeze damage shows up.>>
As more and more blooms open, I've seen a larger number of freeze damaged  
blooms.  It's usually just the terminal or more advanced  blooms.   Have seen a 
few 'blasted' sockets.  For the newer  members . . . blasted (my terminology, 
maybe) is when there is a spath on the  end of the stalk or branch with 
nothing in it.  Just empty.  A fairly  common thing when a hard freeze hits at the 
wrong stage of development.  
Haven't attempted any crosses yet, so I don't know how or if the pollen has  
been damaged.  
But, I'm thankful I didn't lose full stalks.  Over all, I really can't  
I'm ready to start making crosses.  Love the rains, but quit  NOW!  

If you  don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
