Dear Friends,
	Any bloom this time of year in my climate is treasured.
	Highest on the list are the fall crocus C. banaticus and C. 
speciosum. Both easy and vigorous.

	A few lingering Cyclamen and Colchicum add diversity, but the 
garden is slowing down. Galanthus reginae olgae is just starting to 
bloom, but is very subdued.  Saffron (Crocus sativus) have shown 
their presence, but no flower buds have opened yet

	Time to clean up pots, find homes for extras and plant the 
last new bulbs.

	No frost yet here, but the future is known.

	Enjoying the most of what's still putting on a show.		Jim W.
