<<hot and humid, but no rain for almost two whole days!>>
Wasn't it just last year that you were complaining about the drought?
You are soooooo hard to please!
We're getting the hot and humid with lots of cloud cover, but with less
than 2 inches of actual rain over the past 2 weeks. The ground is
staying damp as it is drizzling a little each day. A couple of days
ago, I got drenched trying to buy some groceries but drove out of the
rain before I got home!
Yet, the grass has not turned brown all summer.

Vicki, I've enjoyed seeing photos of your babies, and now this nice one
from Loic. Wish I had your energy, Loic!
Just wondering whether or not you've gotten feedback on performance of
any of your aphyllas tolerating climate this far south and east -
Oklahoma, Arkansas, southern TN, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, SC?
Do you know if anyone is working on trying to select aphylla &
aphylla-breds that can tolerate our climate? It would be nice to
re-visit that gene pool. From the branching in seedlings, I assume
aphylla is represented in the background of some of Lloyd Zurbrigg's
G.P. Brown rebloomers, but it might be nice to have some 'fresh'
hot and humid, but no rain for almost two whole days!
