Eucrosia 'Harry Hay's hybrid'... a couple of days later & the stamens have unfurled, it really is remarkable...
You'd  never  manage  to fold  up all its "bits"  and  get them back inside the  flower, could  you?!! Just  another  example  of how  fascinating  flowers  can  be.

Conanthera trimaculata, flowering for the first time 8 year after sowing ! The bulbs has been looking mature since several years but didn't want to bloom for unkown reasons and, for unkown reasons, I have 3 stems this year. Was looking very lovely on picture and I'm not disappointed to look at it now  ;D

Lovely Eucrosia. Here Leucocoryne odorata is flowering but not really living up to its name.
