Dear group,
indeed some plants have a strange behaviour for me here. I told already of my Boophone disticha, seedlings of three years, which are now pushing new leaves after a summer dormancy, in spite of my waterings. Hippeastrum aulicum are sending new leaves and the tips of the flower buds are already visible sideway. They will be in bloom at Christmas, as usually.  Crinum moorei will be sending out new leaves soon. Also, surely people from southern California, like me here, have their Zantedeschia aethiopica and Freesia alba just waking up now after a summer dormancy. The Zantedeschia flowers from Januray to early June here and later it disapperas. Indeed I was a bit surprise firts time I discovered that for UK people this is a summer growing plant.
