Thanks, Cohan,
Hoy, our garden has to manage on benign neglect ;D
Although the seedpots (most of the Geiss are still in pots) get a bit more attention. South African bulbs are very easy in our climate because of the similarity with where they are from. We don't even need to water/irrigate these which is why some of them have become environmental weeds in Australia :'(
cheers

So how small are those wonderful Geissorhiza flowers?

The foliage on Pelargonium triste looks interesting.  Kinda ferny, but stiff?
How about a close up...

Lovely bit of colour there Roland . :-*

Here's Romulea eximia currently flowering from seed for the first time --not a large flower but a nice combination of dark blotches between the outer rose petals and inner yellow throat.

Cheers Dave.
