Well, actually this pic is from last year but these crocuses are blooming now. It's just a little chilly to go out and try to take a pic today.

Dafs blooming. One has petals stuck to the cup. Sort of strange but maybe will open all the way in a day or two

Your crocus looks like the one that always blooms first here, Crocus sieberi 'Firefly' - they started a couple of weeks ago, the earliest they've ever bloomed. Do you know if that's the variety you have? This photo is from last spring too- those blooming are under snow now...

Galanthus Comet in Zone 5b. It was under a cloche but when the temps went down to the single digits, I cut the scape and brought it inside.

Beautiful photographs Steve! I think that Lachenalia is gorgeous, and recommend adding it to the ATP data base!

Velthemia (Forest Lily) pink kind...yellow one already bloomed. Grown under fluorescent lights in basement. Moved up stairs tonight.
There's some Lachenalia aloides buds showing color down there as well.
Queen's Tears and white Bletta also blooming down there (I'll have to turn off the sodium arc lamp to get pictures of the latter two).

Are you growing Bletilla indoors? It's beautiful! And the Queen's Tears too!
