While you guys are having a slow time and lots of wet, here things 
are pretty dry and flowers are breaking forth like mad.  Galanthus 
are in or coming into flower, Hoop petticoat type daffs, Iris 
reticulatas are showing, Crocus species, Oxalis, Moraea polystachya, 
Massonia depressa, Ipheion are all in flower or bud, and that is just 
the bulbs I can think of at the moment.  Then there is all the 
non-bulbous stuff.  Winter is always a good time for the interesting 
bulbs feeding through into the main blaze in spring.  All is good! <grin>
