Hi Listers,

Yes, we had a brief and violent thunderstorm here last night with big hail
I was almost afraid to go outside this morning and have a look-see.
Everything was fine much to my relief.  But then, like a total klutz, I was
handling the only bloom stalk of BATMAN (which I have never seen bloom) and
broke it!!  AARRGGHHH!! I was just sick.  It was not far enough along to save

IMMORTALITY just opened and is my first TB to do so.  It opened almost a full
month earlier than last year.  What a season!  Our early show is next Saturday
and I haven't a clue what I will have.  Most of my TBs are still weeks away
from coming into bloom.   I have some nice SDBs open right now that it is a
shame to not be able to show them.  SERENDIPITY ELF is a real cutie, ADVANCED
DESIGN is really eyecatching....peach standards and orange falls rimmed
yellow.  I am happy to see my two favorite IBs are in bloom....WAMPUM (deep
oxblood red with violet fall flash, glistening with metallic gold all over)
and WILLOW WARE ( beautiful blue amoena rimmed with white).  

I have to keep looking at all the lovely things blooming and stop gazing over
to that broken bloom stalk......................

Have a good one!
