Joe Pye Weed has a reblooming sib in the ancestry of Humors of Whiskey. It would be worth getting some reblooming sibs too! Anything that reblooms in Mass. should rebloom in southern coastal Maine.

I am really from Massachusetts, and actually, from the same small town as Stephanie Markham; so hooray for Massachusetts! Hurray! You guys rocked it!

Siberians 'repeat bloom' rather than do the rebloom in the manner of the bearded.

No, Mary Ann. I lost my accent years ago. We moved away from MA to Florida when I was 12.
My father couldn't handle the cold winters any more.

Hated it. It wasn't a happy move.
I do like California, and moved west to go to college. And stayed.

Maybe we should start a new thread about where we all are from!

That sounds like fun. Should we do it now, or wait until winter when we're DYING for some entertainment?

I second waiting for winter. Snowy, cold days when all I have to look at is covered up will be a great time to do some serious chatting.
