Comments:

                     
                         I went to check out the American Columbo. None were blooming. I think there might be a chance in a week or so but I am not sure yet. Because of that I missed out on the Waterfront Trail this past week so the number of flowers found was down. I saw 118 species in bloom with 28 being new for the season.

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