Dear Friends,
	A few unexpected surprises. Rhodophiala popped up in a pot,  very red.

	Considering the climate this year, we have a nice clump of 
Lycoris radiata in bloom here. Most fall foliage species do badly, 
but this winter we had rare snow cover - even with -12 F temps. The 
summer was a near record warm. The combination  of snow cover 
protection and summer heat surely coincides with the best bloom ever 
or this species.  Even a couple 'abandoned'  bulbs sent up stalks.

	A few Zephyranthes candida continue to bloom and Lycoris 
caldwelli is just about finished.

		Best		Jim
