While those of you on the west coast enjoy the blooming of Amaryllis belladonna, those of us in the east are enjoying the flowering of Lycoris squamigera. They started here about three days ago. So far it's the only one blooming here. 

I began to check fritillary bulbs today: what a pleasure it is to turn out a pot and find all of those little offset bulbs clustered around a big fat bulb. I've decided that frits are the guppies of the bulb hobby.
