	I don't think you're making a fool of yourself at all; I
think Wolfe said somewhere that some people hadn't realised the
significance of some flowers that a character saw through a window. In
fact, Wolfe implied that the flowers were blooming in the "wrong"
season, that it's a different season outside the front of the house to
the season seen through the window.

	I agree, provided it does not anger the great god K'op-eeriit.
