Re: FW: TB: Cult: Birds, early bloom

One season I had a lot of bird damage from mocking birds and white crown  
sparrows. The damage by the mocking birds was by tearing up the standards. The  
sparrows just seemed to land on the flowers leaving claw marks. Not too 
serious,  but no show prospects either. I still have the same birds but no damage. I 
don't  know why. I now keep a bird feeder well stocked. The white crowns love  
it, but mocking birds do not use it at all. 
I am now getting a few blooms on last year's maiden bloom. (No bloom yet on  
this year's maiden bloom or on the named varieties.) This would be classed as  
very, very early bloom here, but I wonder if it is in fact very late  rebloom 
from the year before. One seedling, which was not selected, was one of  the 
first to bloom last year as well. It is the first seedling I have had that  is 
both the Emma Cook pattern and a plicata (not to be confused with amoena  
plicatas like Snowbrook).
