Dear All;
	Since it has yet to have a hard freeze there are some odd 
combination in bloom right now.

	The last Crocus speciosum and banaticus ( 2 color forms)  vie 
with first Galanthus reginae-olgae. And Crocus sativus has come and 
gone very fast. Maybe 2 days of peak and then nothing.

	The first Moreaea polystachys opened too and a week or more 
without frost, promises more to come.A rare occurrence.

	A second (or third) round of stems on Alstroemeria psitticina 
is in full bloom, too. and the nearby figs (Celeste?) are ripening 

	Surprises scattered around the yard. What next?

		Best	Jim W.
