    Default Milt. santanaei and Max. sophronitis in bloom

    I took these pictures yesterday, they are just so pretty. The Max. I have had for a year and the Milt. I got not too long ago. The Milt. came with two big buds and several smaller. I hope the smaller ones will mature.

    You should have smelled it this morning. I brought it in the house this morning after the heavy rain because it was going to get hot today. The fragerance was intoxicating.

    Rain?! You had Rain?!?!

    Where does this come from?! I'm not so that far west of you and I think we've had maybe 0.14" of that in the last month. It's been so hot here that the night temps aren't getting much below 75 F and don't get me started on the day temps. I've already had to rescue my cyclamen from the porch-scorching... however my mini-rose seems to be loving it (as long as I water it daily).

    I love your blooms all the same and just wish I could get conditions nice enough to give mine a bit of fresh air.
