Sphaeroid Institute Plant List

List 26.0, 16 March 2015

IDES OF MARCH LIST

What a dismally frigid winter! Not here - as usual we got off easily - but almost everywhere else people have had travails, with alarums sharp enough to invite phytotherapy. Time therefore to contemplate a little list.

Many items will probably sell out quickly. As the distal agent of simultaneous joy and vexation I feel like a certain movie star. Unlike him I've little choice, though I can well advise you to shop early and to avoid non-corruptive literature and imagery. Consider the dully virtuous Mary Bennett, still deep in the study of thorough bass and human nature, two hundred years on.

To order is easy: just email me your wishes and hope that fifty people didn't do the same thing thirty seconds earlier. You are also allowed to hope that all fifty transmissions were blocked by that errant chip of titanium dioxide no longer used to whiten Dunkin' Donut's crankcased patisserie.

+ = one per customer.

US sales only.

Kamchatka may feel American but it is not, yet.
