>What kind of "rain" did you have? Solid? I can't believe rain did
that much damage. It must have POURED for hours.

Some of it was solid, yes. Hail. Not large hail like last year, but
I was told it came down heavy for a brief period. Definitely ice is
solid. And it also poured heavily for hours and was occasionally
powered by strong winds. Most of the breakage is due to the hail,
but heavy rain powered by strong wind can lay even strong stalks down
and destroy any open blooms. At least we got the much needed rain.
The larger hail last year had very little rain with it - less than
half an inch - and it proved to be our last rain until some light
showers in the fall. My treasured oak trees never fully recovered
and I really want to see them get sufficient moisture this year.

I'm sorry to see so many broken stalks and ruined buds, but a lot
survived too and some things are running much later this year.
Barring another disaster I'll still see some nice bloom. I'm
naturally disappointed to miss - yet again - some seedlings I'd love
to see and the timing will interfere with the daubing I'd like to
try, but I'm very grateful for the rain.
