What's blooming - Week of August 15, 2010

I was out of town for a few days last week, and when I came home I
discovered a nice Haemanthus coccineus bloom. I swear I looked at it right
before I left and wrote it off for the year. Also opening this week is
Cyrtanthus elatus x montanus.

Then I went in the garage and discovered improbably fine stems emerging from
the Tropaeolum tricolor I mentioned here several weeks ago -- they look like
24 lb. test monofilament, if anyone is familiar with fishing line. I was
surprised, as my garage is very dark and I have not watered them at all.
Should I water them and/or bring them outside? It's a good 2 months before I
can expect any meaningful rain here.
