Dear Friends,

	The recent posts about prohibited, then fussy plants just points out the vast differences between PBS members and their growing conditions. 

	While there were many plants listed that I can barely grow or really not at all (Cyclamen, Homeria, etc) there are others that grow in abundance like Anemone blanda now showering me with hundreds of blue mixed seedlings and another lovely patch of ‘White Splendor’.

	How different our growing conditions, cllimates and gardeneing methods yet we all share te love of gardening with bulbous plants. This list is a place to brag and complain to like minded folks willing to put up with the vagaries of their own location.

	Right now the garden is a riot of spring flowers, but we have been about 2 months without  a real rain ( a few 100s of an inch). We’ve had record days above 80 F(including on of 87F ! ) and howling spring winds, but the color keeps popping up.

	Guess I am glad I can grow ‘anything’ at some time. Meanwhile still waiting for rain and the iris and peony season to begin in earnest.			Enjoy what you have.		Jim W.
