Thanks everyone for all your nice comments. I'm hoping to have many more of blooms
to share this year. Smiling

We've finally had some nice rain here, and more coming in a few days. So will plant
all the baby S.oxy's in the ground asap so they can get a little nitrogen, and
form some good roots before the hot weather comes in July. Green Grin!
