Today was a very sunny day, so in the show-hall the venetian blinds were closed
and I had some difficulties with making good pictures.
Nevertheless here are some results:
A nice pot with Fritillaria acmopetala ssp. wendelboi
Helleborus Silver Dollar (a lividus cross)
Narcissus Small Talk
Narcissus gayi
Primula vulgaris taygetos
Luit van Delft, right in the heart of the beautiful flowerbulb district, Noordwijkerhout, Holland.

Another good day in Lisse!
 I always think of Fritillaria acmopetala as being one of the later flowering frits... a shock to see it today!

Lovely show Luit, some very nice plants and really well grown. I liked the Ipheon dialystemon particularly and also Primula vulgaris Taygetos which I have in my garden. I bought it last year from Broadleigh Bulbs but they spelt it, quite wrongly 'Taigetos'

Thank you for your nice words. I hope to show more as long as you like it.

David, I believe this plant came from the same source as yours as 'Taigetos'
I didn't note the spelling was wrong, I typed it automatically with an 'y'.
Don't know what is right, but if the plant originated in Greece what I think, Taygetos is better!
I couldn't find it in The plantfinder either.

Luit, you were right. Have a look at this, and if you have a bit of time to spare have a look at the whole Site.

Thank you David, I had a short look at the Site and for me it's clear that it should be "taygetos".
But I think it will be difficult to convince the Nursery owner she made a mistake.

Did you have a nice Wednesday then??       ;D ;D

Some impressions of what I saw today with some nice improvements
on orange Fritillaria as cutflower without the normally ugly scent and
some exemples of crosses of non-smelling Frits with f. raddeana.

Thanks Luit for all your pics!

Maybe a stupid question for you, but I'm a beginner in bulbs, so pleeeeeeeease tell me, what's the difference between Iris histrio, histrioides and reticulata?
I have The Bulb Book by Martyn Rix & Roger Philips (the old version) but it didn't enlighten me. They say only that (by head) "I. histrioides is closely related with I. histrio, but usually does not have leaves at first flowering."
