Coastal California blooming

I just noticed yesterday, I have ONE Haemanthus coccineus flower just beginning to push its way up through the bone dry soil.  This is a winter grower/fall bloomer for me.  I decided to give it a drink in response to its effort to bloom ... not sure if that is recommended or not.  Last year's bloom was not too impressive ... will hope for better in the next week,and if so, post a link to a snapshot.  I'm sure there must be other H. coccineus coming up in CA ... there used to be a beautiful clump at Strybing/SF Arboretum.
I usually have Drimia (Urginea) maritima blooming now ... but so far, I only had a few small spikes shoot up in July, which I previously thought unworthy of mention.  Also, waiting for my Sternbergia lutea too.
