Howdy Bill et al,

I have L. pendula in full flower here in one part of my garden.  I think
there are buds on three other varieties as well (all L. aloides varieties
from memory).

I have a bunch of seedlings coming up from this years sowings as well as
last years coming back.  Always exciting to see things come back each year.  

Looking forward to more of my Third Year Fritillaria seedlings reappearing
as well.  No idea how I am going to repot them as they were sown into a
polystyrene box with other genus in rows, making it difficult to get them
out without disturbing the surrounding neighbours.  I might have to bite
the bullet and lift them out when growing so that I have more to hold onto
<grin>.  They were the first bulb seeds I ever sowed and I never did them
that way again.  All in their own pots now.
