Here are a few more pics taken last week.
Firstly, the very green and strange, Freesia viridis, which arrived as something completely different from the AGS Seedex - it was supposed to be one of my desiderata, Syringodea! Here are 3 views of the freesia, still in it's seedpot 3 years after germinating!
Next is yet another "hoop", this time a hybrid raised by Glenbrook Bulb Farm by crossing "Tarlatan" and "Julia Jane", hence: "GlenBrook Ta-Julia". This is actually a grex and this is the earliest flowering of the ones I've got.
I'll post a pic of Erodium glandulosum "Spanish Eyes" to the Geraniaceae thread later.           
cheers

Fermi, the Freesia looks pretty much like what I have as Anomatheca (Lapeyrousia) viridis.

Well, it wasn't frosty this morning, so I was able to get some more pics.
First, the snowflake formerly known as Leucojum tingitanum, now Acis tingitana.
Then some more of the "hoops", the early Narcissus romieuxii varieties and hybrids:
" Treble Chance";
" Jessamy"
2 of " Twenty-fiver" a Glenbrook Bulb Farm raising;
2 of " Galligaskins" another GBF.
cheers

Lovely to see Fermi. It reminds me of one thing about this disasterous UK Summer, that, in time, Spring will surely follow

Fermi,

Great pics.  Love those hoops.  The 'Treble Chance' in particular is lovely.  It's one that didn't make it at my place for some reason (who knows why, given the others do fantastically for me).  'Julia Jane' is in full flower here at the moment, looking stunning, plus 'Ta-Julia' (or one of its numbered seedlings, I got it from a friend so no idea for sure), 'Twenty Fiver', 'Tarlatan', Galligaskins' (just finishing up), 'Fyno' (a couple of late flowers), plus one or two others.  And then there are a couple of Crocus corsicus (one pot REALLY early, no signs of flower on the others) and a couple of others.  A few other special bits and pieces as well which is nice.  Haven't photographed them all as yet, but try to get them all as I can.  I really must get my butt into gear and post some pics myself. 
Cheers.
