I am so sorry for not posting my location and for not putting my 
subject right.  I got the topic list/welcome to the club e-mail AFTER 
I posted.

I am in southwestern VA zone 5/6.  If you are a nascar fan I am about 
45 minutes from the Bristol International Raceway.

I am really afraid that they are going to rot.  It was nice and hot 
yesterday, raining again today... We have had a tremendous amount of 
rain this spring.  I guess I will just keep my fingers crossed and 
hope for the best.  They look so terrible, I was just hoping there 
was something I could do to help them out.

the country you are in.
