Dear Jim and all, Here our bulb garden is very exciting which I would like to share with you all. We had some good rains, nights are cooling but the days are still warm. After a hot dry summer, September is always a very good month. Flowering is about 10 days later than usual. A late cultivar of Amaryllis belladonna ( strawberry pink with a white center) and the white form are in full flower. Rhodophiala bidida, just starting (the red spot can be sighted from far). Lycoris radiata still in full flower and Lycoris chinense just starting. Amacrinum, one of my favourite plants in full flower along the drive way. Great cyclamen patches, espcially a large white patch under a fig tree. Polianthes tuberosa semi-double and simple shall be going for another month. In the oxalis corner: O lobata (very spectucular), O. caprina, Oxalis flava and not to forget O bowei. And of course Sternbergia lutea shows up everywhere. Moraea polystachya since 4th september(extremely early) showing up.Tulbaghia violace always enjoys a new flush of flowers in september.
