CULT: effects of cool weather

Hi, all,

I have done my share of grumbling about our chilly spring (I can 
count the days of sun on one hand, and today is the first day up into 
the sixties!)

But there's a silver lining showing up here:  the talls -- finally 
blooming -- are maybe only 2/3 the height of last year, and the 
blooms often half as big.  But consequently, I haven't had to stake a 
thing.  Last year, they were so tall and hugely blossomed, I had to 
stake every one just to stand up, let alone survive a wind.  So here 
they are, right at the perfect height for crossing, and upright as 
little soldiers.  Thank you, Iris Goddess.
