With the twitchy weather, we've also had C. hederifolium pop up some flowers
in the last two weeks.  I have some hederifolium seedlings that have not
gone dormant as well.

A lot of my volunteers are 'complaining' about a how cool the summer has
been so far...

Merrill in Palo Alto, where summer is forecasted to be here Thursday... (and
only Thursday...)

Dear All,

I mentioned recently that we have had late rain in our Mediterranean 
climate accompanied by cool temperatures and a lot of fog since then which 
has meant that the temperatures have remained cool. Cyclamen cilicum has 
decided to bloom and others that are dormant until late fall are putting 
out new leaves. My usual procedure is to respond to my plants so if they 
start into growth I water them. But we could get what people think of as 
summer weather anytime between now and October. Would I stop watering then? 
Any advice from others who have experienced this in a rogue year. This no 
doubt happens in the UK? Thanks in advance.

Mary Sue
