Elm, some of your photos come through to the
archive where I can pick them up, but this last one did not, showing the
same blank area some of the other photos have shown. I suspect it is
my software that is responsible....not your doing. It's a trade off--less
spam, but lost opportunities to see some good things.
I also wanted to comment---the danfordiae I
planted here fall before last and had lovely bloom last spring have all
vanished, and my snow crocus seem to be gradually fading away. Either the
wet summer last year rotted them (which is what I suspect), or else they made a
tasty meal for something underground--voles perhaps.
That''s odd, because the blue and purple
reticulatas and the larger, later crocus are thriving and getting to be
substantial clumps. Maybe they are tougher? Or less
We were in full bloom with both the latter and had
a day of high velocity, desicating wind that wiped them all out. They are
laying over or just wilted--and look done for the year. We had one or two
glorious days with them.
