This must be California week in my garden: various west coast of North
America Brodiaea (B. jolonensis) , Dichelostemma (D. multiflorum, D.
ida-maia, D. Pink Diamond) and Triteleia (T. ixioides) are blooming now and
more are on the way.


Dutch iris are also in bloom, as are such big Asian Allium as cristophii and
the garden hybrid Globemaster. 


Little Allium crenulatum, the Olympic onion, is also blooming. 


Moraea polyanthus continues to bloom, and with each new flower it rises a
bit in my esteem. 


Lilium hansonii has some well colored buds and will probably be the first
lily to bloom here this year. 


A nice seed pod is ripening on Tecophilaea cyanocrocus. 


Crocuses in the lawn, mostly tommies, are putting their seed capsules up to
the sun.
