		Ron passed away on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012. Because he kept records of
early and peak blooming times for nearly 30 years and then passed along his summaries
to me for this site, I plan on leaving his last summary here. Below is a small sample of
what the whole summary looks like:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
