More bulbs in bloom:

Proiphys amboinensis,
a species that I predict will never become a weed in Indiana, not ever.  It 
likes to stay warm over winter, but handles a dry dormancy in my warm 
greenhouse pretty well.

Crinum razafindratsiraea,
I added this picture to FloraPix for the sake of consistency.  Native to 
deserts of Madagascar.  Last bloom opened today.

Crinum variabile,
shows a picture from several years ago, although the plant is in bloom in 
my garden right now.  Just now, it looks pretty pathetic from the heat in 
my garden.  This one is hardy in my garden, here in central Indiana.

Note that I think anyone can post images to the FloraPix web site.  It 
saves using picasa or flickr, and avoids making your own web pages.  If you 
have trouble using it, get in touch with me; I can probably help.
