I finally took a look at Lee's mystery bulb.  I can't offer any idea of its
ID, but I can ramble.  
When I saw the first picture, I thought "Habranthus."  Then I saw the
second picture and threw that possibility out, since Habranthus wouldn't
produce more than one flower to a stem.  I thought "Crinum, maybe?"  But it
doesn't really look like a Crinum -- no floral tube, and the stigma doesn't
look right.
One possibility is the pink form of Rhodophiala bifida (var. spathacea.)
Whatever it is, it's a beautiful plant.  Let's hope it multiplies and
