Rube's Notes:

Over six feet tall, the Siberian Squill is one of the most spectacular spring-blooming bulbs. The bulb itself is the size of a bowling ball and must be planted two feet deep.

No, just kidding. Fig. 1, the squirrel-cam view, shows how big these flowers actually are. See 4/7/03 NYCJPG for more on squill.

Figs. 2 and 3 show a flower that the Rube has taken a personal dislike to this spring. The blooms point to the ground and you can't see them! What is the point of that?
