**Aha! something is blooming that I actually planted and know what it 
is. My pink Amaryllis belladonna is blooming. I have others planted 
all over and they aren't showing a single spike.

I also have two pots of Cypella aquatilis which have been blooming 
for quite some time.

Other bulbs are sitting and waiting to see if I walk by and give them 
the kiss of death.
Learning is a slow process for old people. :-)
