Each bloom is short-lived here, Arnold. I had a great display of them 
and 'Album' the third week of June. The mother bulbs on the standard 
pinks bloomed this past week, a little stronger and taller, but not 
nearly the display offered by their daughter bulbs surrounding them.

For the first time my 8 feet or so of Eucomis pole-evansii are blooming 
well. I'm going to try to put some E. montana pollen on some tomorrow. 
Any day now, the Lycoris squamigera should start blooming, but I am 
guessing the 25th. Will be adding fresh mulch tomorrow.
