Plant inventory after Frances
I'm still wading in a few places, but the water is going down. Lots of tree debris clean-up and pruning to be done, but the rain lilies are blooming. Some ornamental grasses aren't looking happy, and the willow tree is looking brown; it got whipped around a lot. Maybe that's the problem; it shouldn't be the water. The pond is over its roots; and the river birches are in the pond, but they're water lovers, I thought. The rosemarys, which hate wet feet, are probably goners. Time will tell; but the two crape myrtles, recently planted by the patio, are putting out new growth. We are very fortunate.
