Re: CULT: deformed blooms

There were a lot of deformed flowers here this year, but unlike most
years, it was the later blooms that were deformed, not the earliest ones
on the stalk.

There were missing standards & falls, also many missing or double style
arms, often in the same bloom.  One had normal three standards and
falls, but one style arm was missing, two anthers were on that side,
normal parts elsewhere.

These all opened after the floods that made the national news.  I'm used
to seeing freeze damage, and late season heat/dry wind damage, when
standards are shrunken and/or can't open properly, especially on some of
the lacy or heavily ruffled blooms.  They were even worse after the
heavy rainfall.
