Bloom time: Bloomeria crocea (Golden Stars)

The first of the exotics in my garden may have faded, but the California natives are coming along strong.

Although the saffron crocus seems not to have have enough energy to bloom this year, my Bloomeria crocea (Golden Stars) are just hitting their stride.  You can see how I handled and identified my bulbs in the post aptly titles, "Bulbs!".  Short version: these are in pots after a late season spate of purchases.

On April 2 I could tell they were coming.

On April 4th, it was closer

On April 5th, I got my first bloom.

By April 10th, I had flower power!
