Dear All,
	This is a slow time in the garden. A sudden cold front, rains 
from a lagging Gustav and lower temps have slowed things down a lot.

	Lycoris caldwellii is still going strong and my optimism is 
for bloom on the later L. radiata and relatives.

	A small patch of color is provided by a pot of Rhodophiala 
bifida in a gallon pot. On the one hand it really isn't much, but the 
color is great and the amount of care is minimal so it is getting 
more attention -at least admiration- for a few days now. Mine is from 
the Texas 'form' which I have tried in the garden, but without 
success. just pushing it a bit too much.

	Anyone else blooming it now?

		Best	Jim W.

ps. I meant to comment earlier about Judy G's note on 'Friendly 
INvaders'. You mean it isn't all black & White and there are shades 
of grey? Whoda Knew? Thanks for the link.
