Jim, While you guys are having a slow time and lots of wet, here things are pretty dry and flowers are breaking forth like mad. Galanthus are in or coming into flower, Hoop petticoat type daffs, Iris reticulatas are showing, Crocus species, Oxalis, Moraea polystachya, Massonia depressa, Ipheion are all in flower or bud, and that is just the bulbs I can think of at the moment. Then there is all the non-bulbous stuff. Winter is always a good time for the interesting bulbs feeding through into the main blaze in spring. All is good! <grin> Cheers. Paul T.
