Then I got a couple of offlist posts from folks about finding M & ML
rebloomers.  Thanks to all who sent suggestions - but I don't want to
play anymore :< .  I meant to say, I keep looking, but not buying.  Too
discouraging & much more fun to try to create my own 'children' from the
two rebloomers that really thrive here (IMMORTALITY & HARVEST OF
MEMORIES).  LADY EMMA may join that short list - she seems to be
thriving under a thick mat of self sown violas in full, gorgeous bloom.

Anyway, although they were subtle about it <grin>, I think the kind
offlisters might suggest that there are a lot more M rebloomers than my
earlier post indicated.  Many M bloomers don't make it here either &
some MLs are stunted by hot dry weather during bloom.  Grouse grouse -
anyway, I am still interested in hunting up pedigrees of ML rebloomers
sometime to see if there is anything predictable about bloom season
heredity, unless somebody has already done that?

There is a stalk on BLACK MAGIC!  It usually gets frozen out by late
freezes here, so this is a good sign, unless of course it drops down to
22oF next week.
