Dear PBS Friends,
	I am sort of surprised that there has been response or 
comments about this plea for involvement.
	I don't know anything about this group, but membership groups 
of all kinds (including PBS?) are in trouble these days. Whether 
local garden clubs, national societies and activities of all sorts.

	I know that if I were any bit closer to MA, I'd consider 
signing up and going.

	And that is not so hidden plea to consider renewing your 
membership and involvement in PBS.

	Recently I was at a bigger garden center and found two 
interesting bulbs in the rows of pots of labelled cacti and 
succulents. One was an Ornithgalum with tufts of grassy  thin leaves 
coming out of exposed bulbs, and the other was a long emergent 
exposed bulb, but I can't recall the genus. A familiar name, but an 
odd plant.

		Best	Jim W.
