A good season

Here in LA, my Nerine also did exceptionally well this year. At the moment, I've got Oxalis, Lachenalia, Polyxena (which are now Lachenalia), Gladiolus, and Freesia blooming. Most everything is up and putting on growth. All in pots.

It has been terribly dry here this year with well above normal temperatures,
However, those conditions have been ideal for potted bulbs. Bulbs in the
ground are still below ground. Still, let's enjoy what we have. With
virtually no rain since March and an unrelenting summer the oxalis and
nerines have flowered wonderfully. With the lightest of waterings in
September and October the resulting displays came later but were far more
floriferous. And, of course, there were no predators. 

It's just as well that we have something to enjoy. With dying trees and
shrubs, collapsing cacti and water rationing the bulbous systems have
responded well, albeit with a bare modicum of water.
