Well. One came up Saturday, two days after I wrote the above. Bulbs will
do that to you. Flowers soon.

I also found Strumaria discifera in bud in a storage box. Time to pull out
the stored bulbs in boxes, and plant the amaryllid seeds sleeping in the
refrigerator since spring. I was waiting until after our current heat wave
is over (106 F / 41C as I write) but the bulbs jumped the gun. At least
nights are beginning to cool.
