Happy Halloween!

Colchicum autumnale 'White Waterlilly'

First Frost Night-October 24th-2011

You have to excuse my brief mid fall absence from blog updates. In the interest of doing my part for energy conservation i've been installing a ducless heat pump. I have to take a moment to sell these. Absolutely the most efficient source of electrical heat you can get. If you don't have gas to your house, this is the way to go. They have been in Europe and Asia for almost 20 years, but typical America is slow to catch on. My little house is circa 1932 farmhouse, when the previous owners remodeled they removed the wood stove and put in cadet wall heaters. These are highly inefficent and frankly scary to operate as you never know when they will start shooting flaming sparks out onto your carpet. Now my house is toasty warm and I'm paying a very slight fraction of what I used to pay.......Saving Salmon and staying warm this winter. It's a Fujitsu 12 RLS in case you are interested.

Sternbergia lutea-Jane has this one labeled as "small form"

Colchicum tenori

More coming soon, but it's getting late and I'm tired!
