What a difference.....

Dear Friends,
	What a difference a day or two of 60 degrees can make. After 
reporting a paucity of bloom just 2 days ago, the garden today has 
hundreds of crocus, Galanthus, Eranthis and buds are swelling 
mightily.  I was shocked to find a fully open flower and a 2nd bud on 
Galanthus elwesii 'Rosemary Burnham' a cv which I don't think has 
ever bloomed for me during its years of residence. The plant and 
flower are small, the flowers a cool green so it may easily have 
skipped my notice.

	The forecast still shows nights in the 20s and a dip into the 
teens so there's a halt in exuberance on its way, but right now the 
sun is shining and a light shirt does not DEMAND a heavy jacket 

	Surely spring is on its way. 		Anticipating.
