                           Our internet connection has been poor or not working at all for almost three weeks so I have not been able to upload my web page information. I have discovered the wi-fi at the local library but have not been able to sort out how to transfer my files from the computer at home to the laptop and then to the site yet. I am hoping I have all the right files now. Trying for the 5th time in the last two days. Hoping . . .

		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:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
