Is Calochortus vestae in bloom?

Thank you to those who sent me information.  I am still in California, seeing lots of flowers.
I was able to see lots of C vestae and a couple of other species of Calochortus as well.

I was curious to see what the bulbils in the leaf axils would look like - would they be like
the ones in tiger lilies?

I couldn't see any, but then examined a plant with six flower buds emerging from leaf axils.
I could see a little white bump near the bottom of the stem of one of those flower buds.
Is that a bulbil?  Does it develop further after the flower dies?

I posted some pictures on the Scottish Rock Garden Club forum:
