Dear Friends,

	I currently have Lapeirousia oreogena in bloom. This is its 
2nd year. The small flowers are intensely colored and very striking. 
I gave it is expected dry season, but was afraid I had over done it 
by denying water too long.  It is responding nicely to late watering. 
It is blooming about a month later than last year.

	I also have and expect flowers soon on L.  jacquinii and L. 
silenoides. The former bloomed last winter, but I am anticipating 
first bloom on the latter species.

	The flowers are very intensely colored, tiny and have a definite charm.

		Enjoying these small goodies.		Jim W.

ps the weather is still oddly mild with another day of 60 F and 
sunshine - that's 4 in a row . Odd Jan and Feb.
