I need to get some sleep.

I caught up on sleep.  I got up for the day around 11:30 a.m.  We made it to our afternoon appointment with Dr. B., the podiatrist.  It was a painless experience for me.  Dr. B. and I talk about gardening.  His other hobby is golf, but I guess he knows I'd have nothing to contribute to a discussion of golf.  I lent him a couple of books by Felder Rushing, Tough Plants for Northern Gardens and Maverick Gardeners: Dr. Dirt and Other Deternined Independent Gardeners.

The Tough Plants for Southern Gardens book, which I did not lend out, has a good amount of overlap with the northern version, plus it includes crinums, which I'm growing in pots.  The milk-and-wine lilies and the 'Stars-and-Stripes' crinum haven't bloomed, but they have a good number of leaves.  I didn't expect the 'Ellen Bosanquet' crinum to bloom, but I'm happy it did.  From articles I've read, crinum seeds were brought over from Africa and became established in the American South.
