In the greenhouse, some of the Haemanthus barkerae are blooming, as well as 
a couple H. pubescens  pubescens.  There is a bud on the H. dasyphyllus and 
on one of the H. coccineus.  Another coccineus is in full bloom, with very 
curious -- and quite attractive -- bicolor (red and white) bracts.

Pictures will eventually appear in my blog, 

The Lycoris have mostly faded except for one clump of L. caldwellii.  Bloom 
is a bit spotty;  what with the extend hot, dry weather we have been 
having, perhaps not surprising.
