REB: report for mid December

        DOUBLEMINT opened yesterday, it looks darker (more bluish yellow) than I
have seen it before and has small white horns. The cool weather seems to have 
this effect on coloring (days 65 nights low 40's) ASPEN and SHARLEE are still in
bloom. TEA LEAVES is showing color in the bud, the stalk is fairly tall 
(for this one) but "branches" are very short (1"). 

        The lavender/violet flowers of Moraea polystachya "Lilac Shower" are 
open now, they last about 3 days each. The simple white flowers of a dwarf 
Dietes vegeta hybrid are also open now.

        Still have not had a frost yet as such the impatiens, fuchsia's and 
Mandevillia are still looking perky.

        Chad Schroter in Los Gatos CA Zone 9.
