February Gold (?) blooming now

This picture does not look exactly like 'February Gold'.  'February Gold' is
a cyclamineus hybrid with sweptback petals.  A profile view would be most
helpful in identification.  The petals in your picture look almost too flat
and perfect to be 'February Gold'.  Petals of this cultivar are usually
somewhat twisted with no suggestion of overlap.  You might want to google
Daff Seek - query page.  Type in February Gold and look at the pictures.
Daff Seek is a wonderful tool for identifying daffodils developed by Nancy
Tackett and  Ben  Blake of the American Daffodil Society.  The black and
white photo is perhaps the most typical.   Please do post a profile shot.
Do you know the source of your bulb?

I think this is 'February Gold', blooming now.   Narcissus experts out
there, correct me.  If so, one of the few reliably returning Narcissus here
in San Diego:
Also blooming now ... Lachenalia alooides:
