Yesterday I saw a spike starting in my garden. The ones in my garden 
always bloom much later than the ones closer to the ocean a couple of 
miles away that have been appearing here and there already. This one 
with a shoot usually blooms in September. Since except for almost a 
week of warmer than usual temperatures, it has been a colder than 
usual summer with many days of only a couple of hours of sunshine, 
this throws out the warmer temperatures theory. I wonder if it is the 
very late significant couple of days of summer rainfall we had late 
June after a dry spring. My garden is I suspect much too shadier for 
successful blooming. It will be interesting to see if this year is different.
