Those are wonderful photos and specimens!

I'm envious of your mild climate.  Spring only just arrived here.  Temps
forecast into the 50's for the next couple of weeks with night time temps in
the 30's.  Daffodils and tulips are finally breaking through the ground in
celebration!  :)

I spent Sunday afternoon scalping the foliage on all my Kniphofia clumps
because the foliage otherwise smothers the little bulbs planted nearby...
Iris reticulata, various muscari, tulips, etc.  I think it's time to move my
pokers out to my prairie beds where they can be as thuggish as they want.
