Cultivars: Here is an excellent link for characteristics of the cultivars:
Gus stopped chemo for the adeno-carcinoma in his lungs in September but is still alive an kicking. His cough is becoming worse and he is not as active but he doesn’t seem to be in pain and still eats well. Just taking it day by day.
and now back to Hurricane Matthew……
Cooler nights, in the 60s, and reasonable day temperatures, in the low 90s, have encouraged a flush of blooms.
Many of the Jewelweeds died from the 100f temps and drought but a few have come back to bloom.
We have no hurricane threats this year….until now. We are waiting to see which direction Matthew will travel. Some rain would be nice but no wind!!
