In Coastal Northern California the Oxalis, Cyclamen, Nerine, and 
Crocus continue to bloom. Crocus niveus has been especially nice. And 
the pink form of Oxalis flava is now blooming.

New bloomers this week are:
Freesia fucata
Iris unguicularis
Lachenalia rubida
Nothoscordum montevidense
Polyxena maughanii syn. Lachenalia maughanii

Griffinia aracensis has surprised me with another new spike on what 
looks like the same bulb that now has a spike in seed and I saw 
another flower on Romulea macowanii this week. That's a very long 
bloom time for this plant with its yellow flowers that bloom almost 
on top of the soil.

I also spy a touch of white in the middle of the leaves of Haemanthus 
deformis so it will be in bloom soon.
