That's beautiful! I think all your plants loved all the rain!

You could be here where I'm loosing plants like crazy in this heat and very dry weather. The ground is like concrete...which is more typical for the middle of summer.

The trouble with these Delonix is that the winter wet rots the bulbs.

I know that could be a problem. I wish I had that problem! It's better than having everything die from lack of water.

Mine have come up... But no flowers as of yet!

Delonix - whether they die of drought or drowning they're still dead!!!

Thanks Junna!

PT - yours has made buds though? Most of my F.persica flower buds got blasted by frost which was a downer.

I'd rather loose a few things from wet then have many plants die from drought. Of course, over there you don't know what a real drought is. I'm talking the 3 - 8 year long droughts, not the 3 or 4 month droughts! LOL!

I used to tease my friends in Europe when they told me they were in a drought...they would said they didn't have rain for 3 or possibly 4 months...of course my answer was...that's not even half our normal dry season here in California. :>)
