Dear friends;
	In early Jan we had a discussion here on Leucojum. I 
mentioned that the mild weather had already produced the hint of 
color within the emerging leaves of this species. Right after the 
temperatures 'went south' and then they were literally embedded in 
ice for 6 weeks.
	Now the melt has returned and today's forecast is for 78 F !

	Within a period of hours these deeply enfolded buds have 
popped up and open and are emerging on flowering stems even as the 
open flowers.  They were 'suspended'  and ready for 2 months and now 
on a high speed catch up.

	Amazingly resilient. 			Best	Jim W.
