Galanthomania in the US

I said it would never happen to me, but once I saw Hitch Lyman's
collection, I couldn't help being a tiny bit smitten.  Over time I've
acquired a few fancy cultivars from Hitch, plus masses of old-fashioned
singles and doubles from various sources.  When we had to move last fall,
though I brought a 15' truck of plants with me, I could find hardly any of
my deeply dormant snowdrops.  Yesterday a friend from Oswego visited me,
and before he came, he swung by the still-unsold house and former nursery
and dug me a flat of doubles, a flat of Eranthis, and two pots of very
special named snowdrops that he managed to notice and extract.  I am happy.

Now, if only the city would come by and remove the very large run-over
skunk parked squarely in the middle of my road in front of my house, I
would be even happier.  Ah, spring.
