Re: Weather/rhodies


I've purchased from Greer several times over the years and have always been impressed by the plants they send.

All I can say is my sis has bought mail-order from them in the past
and was more than satisfied with the plants. She also buys stuff in 1-
gallon [10-inch] size. We plan to go down there and go to Nichols
Gardens, too, so I've got to get the back of the truck cleaned out for
sure.

Yep. They've got a new one called "Black Widow" that's
to die for.
Don't know if it's included in the on-line gallery.

Sass [my sister]
was going
through Greer's catalog earlier today
highlighting rhododendron
cultivars
she wants to consider when we go
down there later this month.
Many of them
here are still blooming--
some just now coming into bloom.

Beautiful day
today--warm, sunny. Almost got my gooseberry raised bed

finished, but ran
out of topsoil, so back to Lowe's in the AM.

Auralie, it is so good to hear you
talking about beautiful
blooms
after all you've been through.  I do feel
your pain about the
heat,
too.  We got the same temps, but immediately
after lots of rain, so
it's been steaming right out of the soil; we're
dripping w
humidity.
And I hear more rain is on the way.

Our
rhodies are all done, but the
roses around here too are
spectacular.

After a couple of
weeks of rather cool weather - yesterday it did not
get
out of the 60s -
today it is 92.  Everything is cooking - just
looking

totally
wilted.  We need rain so badly, and now this.

However, despite
the
droughty and cool spring, the blooms have been
spectacular.  Everyone's

Rhododendrons are blooming more heavily
than I have ever seen them before.
My Kousa dogwood has massive
blooms.  The peonies are astonishing - or
were
until this heat hit
them.
We were on the Taconic Parkway this

afternoon, and the roadside is
just blanketed with white multiflora roses.
I know they are
considered
a noxious weed and an invasive alien -

though when we first moved out
here nearly half a century ago they were

sold as ideal hedging.  I
have
never seen them bloom as heavily as

they are right now - and
fragrant!
I still wish we had had a gentler

introduction to the heat.  I need
to go
out and water, but just can't
make myself go out until it cools
down a
bit - if it does.
