I've got lost of 

I think my application for IBS fell through the cracks, and I don't get the 
exchange notes.  But, it doesn't seem to matter, members of this group seem 
extraordinarily happy to pass on seeds and starts.  I'm sort of limiting myself 
now to some amaryllids of interest and find that I have a zillion pots of seeds 
already going from such email garden friends. 

Meanwhile, it is the time for my Zephyranthes drummondii to be bloom (first 
rains in warm weather).  I have new seed and will continue to get some for the 
next week or two.  Perhaps I will have 500 seeds this next week or two, which 
will make a lot of packets at 25-30 seeds each.  These guys germinate easily 
and grow well in warm weather.  Just write to me this month and let me know, 
but the main criterion for getting seeds from me is to send your SASE 
soon--first come is first served till the seeds run out (use 2 regular stamps on return 

Some call it Zephyranthes drummondii, Cooperia drummondii, or C. pedunculata, 
and some confuse it with Z. chlorosolen (which is delightful plant, but makes 
a smaller flower).  No doubt there is a correct name or two (ISBN correct) 
out there somewhere.  Yet, such a correct name won't sway me.  I'll always call 
it Z. drummondii, it is a popular native plant that tolerates truly crappy 
conditions as long as it has poor to adequate drainage.

2 inches of rain last night, and surely will be another inch or two today.  
Nights are staying near 70 F, and days are not yet "summer hot."
