Just out of hospital tonight and the heavens are pouring. I am fine but it was dark and I wasn't been able to check the seedling beds when I got home just now. I will worry till to morrow.

Hope things are okay for you Bron. The deluge is still coming down the coast, alas.

Been hoping your plants are OK Glen. Not a good time to be out and about. My daughter just came back from a conference in Roma. Glad she was on highways.

We have been lucky. Only a few hours of heavy rain this afternoon. Lots of ponding on level ground, so good it won't last. Winds weren't too bad either.

I broke a bud off SPACECOAST RUFFLES when pulling rust leaves off PAWN OF PROPHECY. It is pretty bad. Nice to see so many new leaves all healthy.

LOVE the new avatar.

Here I am 3 days later checking this thread & the radar is still showing rain. Blinking

Kaspar sends his best wishes Ann. He is asleep on the printer at the moment because it is warm there.

Yes, it has been raining since last night again. The seedlings are taking a beating.

As well, this is RUFFLED MASTERWORK flowering for the first time for me. But it has been smacked about by that rain too.

We've done the shortest day so plants and weeds will start revving up soon. I have been weeding pots. Ground still way to wet to dig. No sunshine to dry it out either.

But a happy yellow almost green NOID bloom in the shade now and down near the mandarin tree, lemon grass and chili. In summer its flowers were either straight yellow or almost golden yellow. Not just a difference in the images. It looks like a different plant but isn't!! Do any of your yellows do that?

SPACECOAST RUFFLES showed its last bloom for a long while. It doesn't have many leaves so hope it wasn't a swan song. Maybe I should have frozen some of that pollen.

Glen - Your extended bloom season is enviable. I live in Florida so you would think I'd have an extended bloom season, too. Not so, it appears. I wonder what the difference is between my zone 9b/10a and yours?

I am unsure Becky. My guess at Zone 12a for here is just a guess.

What is your latitude? Mine is about 27.5 degrees.

Bron love that seedling. We have been getting a little rain since yesterday. They are predicting more for later. Some tornadoes touched down within our state overnight. All this rain should help extend the season over there.

Glen - This is the coordinates for my location: 27.782778, -80.482222 (I am assuming the first one is Latitude?)

Becky, you are only slightly closer to the poles than I am. We both sit on the east of large land masses and just to the west of very big oceans. You would think we would be similar.

Glen - Exactly my thoughts on the matter.

It is very hot here. Do you grow many of your extended and re-blooming cultivars in part shade? Most of mine are in full sun.

Some of mine are in part shade because of fruit trees.

I am thinking part shade due to the heat, hot sun, and dry conditions might be why mine don't extend their blooms. Who knows?

But I do relate to your climate as I believe it is somewhat similar to mine. Wished I had your luck with extended blooms, too!

When looking for pics of Munsons to post on a thread recently, I noticed the photos were taken in July 2014. It was a few months after I received my first orders of Hems and they were flowering in pots where I had immediately planted them. As well I noticed a few pics I had taken here in July and August. I was surprised this year when there were no blooms for some months. So I wld probably have blooms now if my plants had been in the ground and less traumatised by last summer. Guess I'll see next year.

Glen did you MALENY DEBUTANTE just bloom? I saw a pic on the main daylily page.

No Bron. That was uploaded from this thread. No such luck. I am going to miss a July bloom again.

However, I have had five ticks this month that have knocked me around. I cannot understand it: ticks don't usually happen here until spring!
