    Sorry if this is a duplicate.  The previous send arrived blank at my 

The July issue of the Bulb Garden is on its way to you.  It's a great 
issue.  Our lead article, written by Roy Sachs, is all about 
Alstroemeria.  There are several other articles and many pictures to 
explore!  Jennifer Hildebrand (my co-editor) and I hope you enjoy it as 
much as we enjoy putting it together. 

   This is one of the PBS membership benefits, so if you are not a 
current PBS member, you are missing a treat.  We are already at work on 
the November issue, and I think you will enjoy Jane McGary's article on 
her tour of Greece.  She has graciously sent so many excellent flower 
photos, we are having a difficult time selecting which to use. 

   And, of course, this is the time for my quarterly request for you to 
write an article.   Without your contributions, there would be a very 
minimal newsletter.   Please consider writing about your garden.   Any 
topic related to bulbs-rhizomes-corms is suitable.   Write about your 
garden design, a special garden spot you enjoy, a favorite genus and its 
culture.  We also use descriptions of public gardens and book reviews.  
Please e-mail me if you want details about size, etc.  And, do please 
respond if I write asking that you volunteer to write something.  

   Please e-mail Arnold Trachtenberg  (arnold@nj.rr.com)  if you are a 
current PBS member and do not receive your copy by the end of this 
week.     Please let Pat Colville  (Pat.Colville@JHResearchUSA.com) know 
if your address or membership year is not correct or your membership 
needs to be renewed.
