Spectacular banner Leslie!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Sorry - been MIA a bit. Thanks for all the thumbs and acorns. I tip my hat to you.

@Marilyn - here is the full picture of Casablanca: Thumb of 2020-08-09/Lestv/bb95ec

This is my first year with Alstroemeria. I am right on the end of their growing zone and they aren't really happy with the heat, even though I have them in half shade. They do need to be watered a lot. I have two types but Casablanca is the better grower.

Evelyn - We ended up with lots of rain but the wind sort of fizzled out. Tornadoes caused the most damage. This was the quietest hurricane I have been through that has come inland. Sure played havoc further north though.
