Dear all;
	To my surprise a 'Bowles White' responded to our very unusual 
after Chrstmas warm up by opening a single flower on New Year's Eve. 
The outside temp got around 65 F. and nearer 70 F the day before.
	We expect early crocus by mid-Feb and occasionally late 
January, but this is by far the earliest bloom we have ever had. 
After a search in leaf debris we found other 'Bowles White' up, but 
not open and same for C. ancyrensis another of the earliest Crocus.
	Global Warming ? Of course there was not a bee to be seen and 
they usually find every early bloom.

	What will 2005 bring?
