On a beautiful spring day (April 16, 2003) there were a number of geophytes in bloom at the Getty Center. I thought you all might enjoy seeing how geophytes - including some South African and Mediterranean bulbs - are used in public displays here in So Cal. These pix can also serve as "mystery bulb" photos, because while I knew enough to know they were bulbs, I don't know their proper IDs! Images posted by Jennifer Hildebrand.
Here's an Alstroemeria:

A wall of Tulbaghia and a Watsonia.
Just in case anyone is interested, here are some overview pix of the garden and the Getty itself:
