I was interested to read what is blooming in Jane's Oregon garden. Blooming
today in my Santa Barbara, California garden from bulbs, corms or such. See
the attached ("scrubbed") image, from upper left, clockwise-ish:

Moraea polystachya
Narcissus tazetta "China Lily"
Freesia laxa
Tulbaghia (violacia I guess, just the common garden stuff)
Nerine (bowdenii I guess)
Oxalis purpurea pink and purple
In the center is what I guess is Oxalis glabra
Chasmanthe aethiopica (spelling?)
Scilla vincentii, or, what I received-as that
Lachenalia viridiflora
Narcissus tazetta "Paper White"

My Narcissus cantabricus has just faded recently after a long bloom.

Non-geophyte blooms today included Camellia, Rose, Salvia clevelandii,
Salvia from Ecuador, Viola ("violets"), Limonium, a few
strangling Thunbergia grandiflora and a Kalanchoe that is such hummingbird
bait that I had to move it to a bird-safe spot.

Seed harvested today included only Freesia laxa and a Nerine.

More of the seeds I sowed in November are beginning to emerge.
