Hi everyone,

Mary Sue's description of the wild blooms makes me salivate. There is
definitely yearly environmental conditions that determine blooms of these
bulbs in the garden as well. Around the Bay Area, the blooms are rather weak
this year. I took this photo two years ago…
only about half of those show this year. I live about 400ft higher
where the photo was taken and the plants around my neighborhood are only in
buds whereas they are in full bloom 400ft below.

Northern California coast where other South African amaryllids are starting.
