Brutal Lycoris season

It has been really hot! My Lycoris beds are showing some bloom. A number 
of Lycoris squamigera shot up stalks starting the 26th, I believe. 
Around here, you can count on or about the 25th every year with 
differences only in quantity of bloom, I suppose, based on weather. We 
got a good rain Friday and some L. sprengeri, sanguinea, and longituba 
are poking up spikes. I have been dripping another bed which has had a 
single xhaywardii (before I started dripping) come up, some houdyshelii, 
an unnamed (lost label) from Jim W. that looks a lot like houdy, radiata 
pumila, and longituba x sprengeri (or vica versa), again from Jim W. I 
miss your little sales, Jim...

If you've only recently planted them (since 05), Bill, they are probably 
just playing catchup. If the same bulbs have leafed out for you at the 
proper time before, I wouldn't know why they are coming up now.
