Dear Friends,
	Things are definitely winding down in Kansas City.
	The last few saffron flowers and a couple of Crocus banaticus.
	1 (just one) Galanthus reginae-olgae
	Last Allium thunbergii

	Why ?  We have still hardly had a drop- of rain going on 
weeks and weeks. Now today we are finally get a long slow drizzle 
that will be more than 1/10th of an inch. Actual puddles. Even after 
more than a few freezing nights we can still get some late flowers on 
all of the above and more.

	More fall crocus I hope.

	This has been a dismal end of summer due to our drought, but 
hopefully things will be looking up after a good rain even if it 
brings a little snow as is forecast, too.

	I hope to report some much better bloom next week. Fingers crossed.
