Two things...

Hi all,

a) A belated Merry Christmas to all of you from my Israel trip! May 
there be lots of great Irises in anyone's gardens and in the wild 
next year. 

b) I hereby declare opened the Iris season 2002. I have yesterday 
found Iris vartanii (of the Reticulata group) blooming in a Jerusalem 
forest in the wild, a violet Iris from the Germanica group in the 
Botanic Garden here, and I was told that the first few Iris 
palaestina (a Juno) were seen last weekend on the coast near Haifa. 
I'll be there early next week when they are expected to be in full 

Additionally I saw a few Colchicium, Asphodelus, Crocus hyemalis, 
Narcissus tazetta, Ornithogalum, Cyclamen, Gagea and a few more. 
Quite a difference from the weather at home... Unfortunately I 
haven't any soft- and hardware with me to extract the pics from my 
camera nor to get them reduced from their original 1.4 MB - so have 
patience until the end of next week. 

Best wishes,

Thomas Fietz, Schriesheim, Germany.
