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.
