We had rain on Sunday night and by Wednesday morning these rain-lilies were already up and will be in bloom tomorrow! Hopefully there is enough pollen to do some cross-pollinating!
cheers

Josh,
I'm in Central Victoria, Australia - the the South-East part of the country.
Angie,
thanks, yes, I'm lucky as these are plants that grow without us having to do much for them except divide them when they get congested.
This morning more were open,
Zephyranthes "Grandjax"
329134-0

Habranthus martinezii
329136-1

and Zephyranthes macrosiphon (I think)
329138-2

cheers
