Dear All;
	Last night was our first hard freeze down to about 24F( -6C) 
and marked the end of Crocus. There's still a faint purple showing 
from frozen C. sativus and C. banaticus. I had some 40 or so blooms 
from each so they made a nice show. I tend to appreciate these fall 
species more than in spring when the abundance can be overwhelming.

	Only Galanthus reginae-olga is still standing up to the cold. 
Expect 5 months to the spring bloom season. 5 MONTHS!

		Best to all.
