Hey, Roy, gardening ain't no place for sissies! Those plants really want to
survive in spite of us.

1. Order seeds from BX147, June 30, 2007.
2. Receive seeds, do not examine packets. Leave inside Dell's blue 
bubble wrap.
3. August 12, 2007: decide it's time to find the BX seeds and do 
something with them.
4. Woe! Nerine flexuosa alba seeds have turned to mush. Should have paid 
attention to Dell's note to Myke.
5. Wonder! Nerine undulata seeds have germinated inside the packet, 
formed small bulbs, and are sending out roots. One seed did not 
germinate, but is still nice and green.

NW of Boston
Early season for cyclamen: africanum and graecum (in pots) and 
hederifolium (in ground) are all blooming.
