    It's January 6; it's Connecticut; and it's a rainy 57 degrees at 7:30 am. All my Neps and orchids have been out soaking it up and, by the time I bring them in later today, they'll have spent nearly two full days outside.

    Last night, I was hearing a familiar sound on the way home from work. A distorted, clanging kid's tune. Then I saw it - a Mister Softee ice cream truck. An ice cream truck making its rounds in January in Connecticut.

    I have nothing against my plants getting an unexpected outdoor vacation or being able to buy a King Cone in front of the house, but this is really ominous.

    No kidding. 59 here in Westchester at 7:30

    Good idea to put the plants out for a flush through. Just may have to do that myself.

    I live near Niagara Falls (Canada) and no joke, my S.leucophylla in my outdoor bog is stil making nice new pitchers, and my S.purpurea are doing the same, althought the location of the thing makes it so the angle of the sun prevents enough light from getting on there to make really robust growth this time of year, there's still lots of it- I just hope that none of my Drosera hibernaculae open up, cos while I think the Sarrs could be okay, the Drosera will die if the expected, eventual cold snap happens...

    Tho, like you fellows I too have been enjoying all the bonus water

    Its been in the 50's, 60's and low 70's for weeks in atlanta. We havn't gotten a frost in weeks. in early december, we hit 80 . This is what happens when el nino is jacked up by global warming.

    On a lighter note..

    It was 80 here yesterday and we had summer like thunderstorms. I guess the sarrs here in the wild are the only ones that knows what time of year it is. They have been dormant since november.

    I tried to talk my plants into going to sleep but it doesn't sem to be working...

    It is totally ridiculous taht I am actually considering digging some of them up and putting them in the fridge here in the Great White North just to get them cold enough, no??

    And I am also thinking about fridge stratification on some seeds I have, D.linearis and S.purpurea- the place where the D.linearis seeds came from SHOULD be under a foot of ice and have severe freezing winds crossing it by now....

    I wouldn't worry too much about the sarrs. Sounds like you are haveing close to the temps they would get in the wild.

    Here in zone 4 it has been so very abnormally warm, the snow here has barely had time to land before it melted. On new years. It also rained On new years. The snow was melting today from a big snowstorm that came from the Rockies. It is way too warm.

    This freeze- thaw is killing me. But atleast the marginally hardy garden plants will live if they arnt heaved out of the ground.
    that makes no logic
