Dear friends,
	While having a cuppa this morning and surveying the grounds 
(HA!), we saw a bit of orange where nothing had been showing. A 
closer inspection revealed the 3rd flower on Lycoris sanguinea 
kiusiana.  This is usually the first Lycoris to bloom i the season. 
Time to weed the Lycoris beds so we can see them all.

	L. sanguinea , a Japanese species, does not bloom here each 
year and it is fairly marginal in regard to hardiness. I only have a 
few bulbs and not all bloom at once even if irregular.  The flowers 
are very regular in form and an orange-tangerine in color. Flowers 
are not large or showy, but from the above comments,  they do stand 
out in there own way. TAke a look.


	More to come.		Best		Jim W.
