Default rain

rainI was wrong about those dry days. We haven't gotten them, so no fert
just yet. Gotta pick and choose your times here in late spring and summer.

Thanks for sharing.

(At least here, stuff doesn't automatically catch fire in an electrical
storm!)

Here in California we had thunder and lightning, so you got 2-3 days before
it hits you.

We have had some strange weather here north of Philly, too. 55 when I got
up this morning (it IS June, right?), we get showers in between pockets of
sunshine and deluges - but the weekends have been gorgeous - 80"s, sunny,
low humidity.

You guys are enjoying spring, still in the 50's in Chicago (by the lake).
This is an odd spring in the midwest. Klehm family didn't even make my
farmers market. Scared off by 50 degrees and rain. Why would that stop
anyone from buying orchids :-).

All that was brown around here (and lots of things were!) is now green.
Florida is really quite an amazing place.

We have had a couple of dry days, so tomorrow we'll fertilize. It is
supposed to rain again on the weekend. If it does, I'll do a hit of
fungicide on Monday, just to be on the safe side.

The Vandas, which get their water every day in any event, are ecstatic.
They've been blooming like fools for months, and now they are sending out
multiples.

Ah, orchids. The downfall of many an otherwise intelligent individual.
