The Colchicum atropurpureum is slowly increasing in flowers.  It is by far 
the last colchicum left blooming here.  The Sternbergia lutea are 
approaching full bloom now as well.  And finally, the 6 Crocus nudiflorus 
corms I received from Jane in 2004 (Jane, we are going to miss your surplus 
bulbs badly!) are starting to flower, and seem to have increased to 8.  Cr. 
nudiflorus I've had previously never bloomed and eventually disappeared 

I was quite surprised and delighted to see the nudiflorus blooming 
yesterday, as I had completely forgotten about them.  Thank you, Jane!

Pictures of these flowers will eventually show up in my blog at:…
