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.
