My Lycoris sanguinea started blooming a few days ago, then yesterday  many 
of my squamigera burst into bloom!

We had less heat here than Jim W. did in Kansas City, but no rain until 
about 10-14 days ago.  Since then we have had 2 inches or rain, and the 
Lycoris are shooting up everywhere.

The only pictures I have posted anywhere so far are in the SRGC Forum at:…
