Dear Friends,

	Our weather has been one series of cold set backs after 
another. A lot of early really cold weather and numerous days 
hovering around 0 F.  Today we have 2 flowers fully open in the 
garden and outside. They are the tiny Narcissus minor 'Cedric Morris' 
and it seems like spring must be coming.

	This is one of the earliest and smallest of the daffodils to 
bloom here. This is about the earliest it has bloomed in the last 6 
or 8 years, but more likely in mid Feb to Mid Mar. There are 2 
flowers in full bloom a few more in buds showing colors and other 
bulbs slightly behind. The proverbial breath of fresh air.

	I have to thank the late (great) Jack Elliott for pushing me 
to get my bulbs. I know of no US grower.  My bulbs came from the UK 
(and not cheap), but I wish they were more available. Here's a bit of 
further info:


	Worth pursuing and a real charmer this time of year.

	There's a pic on the wiki too and I took a picture today too 
if anyone can post it for me.

		Can spring be far behind ?

		Best			Jim W.

ps Been too busy for my 2 cents on Cacti and plant photos.  Next time.
