Seeds that are eager to sprout are such a boost to the spirit in  

Today these seeds, from the Alpine Garden Society, sown in mid- 
December, germinated:  Agapanthus, Dierama, Gladiolus and three  
species of Arisaema.

Last year some Colchicum seeds germinated that I had sown 8 years  
previously.  That event did not engender as much joy as the fast ones  
today have. Actually, no joy.  Just a feeling of:  Well! It's about  
time!!   An enthusiasm for life is contagious.
