Dear P.

	It has been years since I vaguely thought about PCNs and you are in the midst. Surely you have a better educated guess than I do.  Wish I could grow I munzii. Does nay one still t ry with success. ?

	No useful pictures in the messages. 

	Are you seeing declines in native lilies  too? Climate woes. 

	We are in the start of a 10 day(maybe longer) heat wave maybe up to 103 (feels like) and NO 0 ZERO - rain. 

	We have no urge to garden in these temps. Weeds love it  - of course.

	Any progress on the garden/estate ?		Cool hugs		J & J
