Romulea monadelpha bloomed for me this weekend, my earliest bulb
except for Bulbinella latifolia ssp. doleritica. R. monadelpha is not
particularly rare, I don't think, but I was very pleased, because it
is the first bulb I've ever flowered from seed (from Silverhill, sown

Also, I was very gratified at how beautiful it is in real life: both
the markings on the back of the tepals, and how satiny the front is:

The pictures of this sp. on the wiki are excellent, so I didn't upload
mine, but you can see them here if so inclined:
