Hello Laura and Dave, the pinkish flowers belong to genus Olsynium, probably O. junceum. This I swear... I have just planted mine, yesterday. Hope they come back this winter.
About the other discussion: "Success with Tropaeolums", sorry for having not anything to say, though these species come from Chile. It happens that I still don't  grow them. 
Best Regards to all,

I've recently returned from a wonderful trip to Peru (mid-February to 
mid-March), and have finally gotten pictures of a couple of bulbs onto the 
mystery bulb page. One I've made a guess as to the genus, but as to the other 
I'm clueless. Thanks in advance for any help.

Also, I've added pictures of two of the western species of trillium, T. 
parviflorum and T. albidum. The T. parviflorum plants pictured live far to the 
north of the range of T. albidum, and thus there is no chance of hybridization. 
The T. albidum pictured, while just beyond the southern end of the range of T. 
parviflorum, are in habitat where T. parviflorum isn't found, so again are the 
non-hybridized species.

Dave, zone 7A, and to heck with the impending drought, I just wish we had sun 
for a couple days! The slugs are out feasting at noon, it's so rainy!
