Well, rats! My old Kodak just can't handle white very well. By the
time I got home from work, I had to take half a dozen Japanese beetles
off to get this shot. This summer maiden is 39.5 inches with nine buds
today. Three in the lowest socket, so I expect more in a few days.
The leaf on this stalk has no branch, so it's a looong way up to the
branching in the photo. Hopefully just another example of maiden
misbehaving and not the influence of LW.
