Sorry I've neglected you. Spring is crazy busy. In April there was the Iris Show, the Iris Trek, the Rose Society Show & district convention. Then this month there was the Geranium show, Mother's Day AND we took a little trip to El Paso, Tx and Carlsbad Caverns, NM. So in my garden there is a lot of work needed! The irony of a fabulous spring bloom from lots of rain is all the deadheading needed afterwards! I still have lots in bloom but also lots of work.
So I just wanted to slip in a little update with a little bulb blooming here, Ornithagalum dubium yellow. It's so cute. Most times you see the white. I also have orange but they're getting swallowed up by a bigger plant.
This is a bulb from South Africa(as most cool plants are) that blooms in Spring here in my zone 9. What's nice about it that it blooms when all my other bulbs(Sparaxis, Honeria, Gladiolus) are done. So yay here comes a little pop of bright yellow! The flowers come up only about 8-10".
Happy Spring! Happy gardening!
