There's lots of fall flowers in my garden right now, but fall bulbs in bloom are a special treat.
My little patch of fall crocus (Sternbergia lutea) is blooming splendidly.
Earlier in the month, my three-year-old patch of oxblood lilies (Rhodophiala bifida) bloomed for the first time.
And with the rain a couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed a handful of rain lily blooms (Zephyranthes).
I don't have many rain lilies, but they're forming nice plump seed pods, so I'm hoping to have more of them soon!
What blooming bulbs herald fall's arrival in your garden?
