The clump of cerise Amaryllis belladonna has come into flower a bit earlier than last year but only one of the others is also in bloom,
One of the white flowered Amaryllis belladonna is now in bloom
And Crossyne flava has burst through the gravel to come into flower in a matter of days
I think that they think it's already autumn!

We have a number of Oxalis from South Africa which like our conditions (I wish the South American ones did as well!).
This is the Salmon Pink form of Oxalis hirta
This is the rather shy to flower Oxalis palmifrons doing well in an "in-ground trough" - which was a mistake as it is trying to escape and could become a weed!
These Nerine rosea were in bloom in April
Followed by a late flower on what I grew as N. filifolia but the foliage isn't right for that species (too wide)
Since then we've also had Nerine crispa (syn undulata) flowering in the Shadehouse
And a winter flowering species in now in bloom but I keep forgetting to get a pic (before the frosts destroy them!)

Yes wonderful, Fermi --no blooms on any of my Nerines this season --found some long lost clumps well buried by heavy leafmold and shaded by shrubs ..all sorted now.

A winter-flowering hesperantha, Hesperantha humilis,
The ornamental romulea species are now in bloom.We grow most of them in pots.
Romulea sabulosa needs a good amount of water when in growth, so is kept in a tray of water when it comes into leaf,
Romulea tetragona has distinctive foliage and bright flowers
Romulea hirta has primrose flowers with dark markings towards the center,
Moraea macronyx is beautifully scented but the flowers are fleeting,
Lapeirousia oreogena might be small but it is absolutely stunning! A flowering size corm produces a whorl of leafy bracts from which each flower emerges,
This Babiana odorata is from seed and may've been hybridized with B.pygmaea,
Wow! Three very different bulbs, each one a stunner. Thanks for posting, Fermi.
Bellevue, Washington Zone 7-8
yes, we are lucky to live in a zone where such bulbous plants thrive (some a little too well!) and we don't have to do much for them.
This Moraea bipartita came from seed from the NZAGS Seedex a few years ago,
