	Maybe it is a sympathetic response to Phelps in Beijing, but 
some Lycoris here seem to reaching new heights.
	I mentioned one early L. longituba at 40 in to the base of 
the inflorescence.

	Now clumps of them are blooming around 33 inches to the base 
of the Inflor.
	Even L. squamigera is around 34 and 35 to the base of the inflor.

	This seems about 3 - 5 inches taller than 'normal'.

	Anyone else seeing this happen? Kelly?

	Still waiting for rain and main event here.

	..and anticipating first bloom on a new planting. Said to 
have been found in a field of L. squamigera it blooms out of synch 
and slightly of color. A chance seedling? First bloom (I hope) and at 
least 4 spikes just appearing at soil level.
