Dear Friends,
	I did not order anything from this most 
recent BX, but I find it both amazing and one of 
the very best reason for not putting off 
membership in PBS.

	The range of selections is pretty 
amazing, but the relative rarity is astounding. I 
doubt you'd find any commercial source for most 
of these offerings. If you live in a suitable 
climate or have the where with all to grow these 
in a greenhouse, this is an opportunity and then 

	Joining the paid membership not only 
supports this list - reason enough to join - but 
having access to the BX makes this a huge bargain 
in simplest $ and ยข.  I suspect that if you 
ordered a half dozen of these commercially they 
would cost you much more than our BX charges per 
share and postage and membership in PBS combined 
and then some.

	A quick check of #1 Brunsvigia littoralis 
gives a single source (in the UK) wanting the 
equivalent of almost $153 for one bulb.  And 
forget even trying to collect the range of 
variation of Massonia and Daubenya being offered.

	These things may go fast to our members, 
but they may never even appear any time or place 

	I am certain you can place an order with 
Dell and include membership info at the same time.

		Just sayin...wow.	Thanks to 
all the contributors.		Jim W.
