Re: Weather report

Keep dry! Wish we, too, were getting more rain - our farm pond will  
be a "puddle" if it continues dry. Spent the morning weeding "the  
swamp" - about 1/3 done. The Japanese iris are blooming (always the  
last of the iris to do so), then hit the local nurseries. Never cease  
being disappointed in what I don't find. Bought a couple tiarella  
cultivars, but not the T. cordifolia I was looking for, and the stuff  
I found did not look like it had that species in their gene pool.  
Also got an Hibiscus 'Copper King', and a Fothergilla gardenii 'Blue  
Mist' (has anyone out there tried this one?). Finally stopped by the  
supermarket and noticed they were shutting down their seasonal  
"garden center" - found one lonely sweet pepper that was clearly  
suffering and decided that for $2.00 (4" pot) I would try a plant  
rescue. First thing I did was remove any peppers it was trying to  
produce and any current blooms. Will plant it in the vegetable garden  
this evening and see what happens.
