Re: Rebloom Report
> I still have much work to do:
Donald, I sympathize and empathize with you. As a matter of fact I even ache
for you. No wait, those aches are mine from pulling weeds out of the pecan bed. I
got almost a third of done before I gave up and decided to water it again. I had it
nice and damp and then got sidetracked. Instead of staying home and pulling
weeds we went to the arboretum for a talk on fall flowers and a tour/search of the
butterfly gardens. There were Monarchs everywhere. It didn't do much for my
weeds but it was good for my soul.
Today Coral Charmer opened. Talk about a show stalk. Beautifully branched,
7 beds, and a gorgeous terminal bloom. Wow! Witch of Endor, Dime Spot, and
Palo Pinto are all still at it. Grenadine Pacesetter should be open tomorrow or the
next day. While weeding I found an SDB that had bloomed under a weed and I
never saw it. The label is one of the bubble jet labels and is totally illegible so I
am going to have to dig out my maps and figure out who I missed.
