I can empathize with your dilemma since I faced the same situation last
year when the Denver Convention coincided with peak bloom in my home
garden. For any BSPers who are going to be away from their garden while
attending the AIS Convention (or for any other reason), I would make the
following recommendations with respect to their data collection for the
	1) If the first bud was almost open before you left, assume it opened the
following day;
	2) If the first flower appears to be freshly opened when you return home,
assume it opened the previous day;
	3) If you are gone for one week or less, assume that anything else that
opened while you were away did so half way through the time you were gone;
	4) If you are gone for more than one week, enjoy your trip and resume your
observations and data recording when you return home.
