Love it Judy, A little story :)

There I was strolling through the garden day dreaming about what an
elephant flock's manure could do for my dry mountain top.

Past a drift of freesias I breathed their sweet perfume & follow a painted
pallet of zephyranthes edging the path, with a sparkle of geissorhiza
dancing in the sunlight like little bright coloured florescent mirrors,
over by the pond their is a rush of water iris & behind them a dance of
flinders lily & hidden in the shadows there is a lush of Caldwell & Amazon
lilies who's bright white blooms highlight a dense of pink amarcrinums.. A
powder of Japanese iris gently move by the water & a cascade of dark blue
grape hyacinth are bursting their autumn buds. A hide of powder blue scilla
spring up amongst the rock garden, around the corner a supernova of Aztec
lilies explode into an inferno of clay fired red...

What a nice story you can design with group names of bulbs :)
