In and Out

Dear friends:
	Just a brief comment on two bulbs blooming for the last few days:

	IN:  Scilla lingulata (is this still a 'Scilla')  This looks 
like a miniature Hyacinth or a good S. biflora. And the tiny heads of 
rich blue flowers have a definite spicy scent. Is this hardy 
outdoors? I am afraid it would get totally lost outside.

	OUT: Saffron (c. sativus) We've had a half dozen hard freezes 
and this seems rather late to start. Most of the fall crocus are 
done. Still a treat to see them and hopefully just the start. Just 
have to get out there to harvest.

		Best	Jim W.
