Winter, so far, has been extremely mild with green leaves still on the oaks and roses trying to flower.

The paperwhites are still respectable.

This is probably a paperwhite dubius hybrid.

This is a nice specimen of N. panizzianus OP (probably selfed). The original was from seed from Michael Salmon. It suggests that panizzianus and pachybolbus can be quite close in appearance.

It is amusing to put it against a large bulbocodium.

The bulbocodiums are always pleasing this time of year.

Another monster has flowered, this one a little more challenging than 14_05VB.

The viridiflorus hybrids continue to delight. This Viriquilla x Virivest seedling is a little starry perhaps but it does have presence.

03_19MJ was a yellow viridiflorus hybrid. Onto Viriverse  it has improved somewhat and produced a large flowered seedling that is putting up a series of spikes. This flower (1st of July) sits below a fairly mature seedpod and below it is an emerging stem.

13_07MJ on the 16th of May.
