    Hi BK,
    Let the sun come and let them bloom. You wait for the sun, and here we wait for the rain. Actually it rained pretty heavily off and on, bringing the long awaited April showers, immediately the garden started looking so beautiful, where as just few days before the downpour they were looking dry like a desert.
