    So, a couple more to show. The first is Blc. Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon' AM/AOS. It's blooming now with 8 flowers on 3 spikes with another spike in bud. I need to get a big back drop for my larger plants, but for now a couple outside pics will have to do.

    and a close-up taken with my old(not great) camera from last year's blooming.

    This one is Northernara (Have no idea what it is called now...) Roy Yarhiro 'Izumi'. It's blooming on 3 spikes, one spike in bud and ready to open. The flowers are as dark as pictured. The plant with spikes is probably 3 ft. tall, so not a good one for inside growers. The leaves on the plant got some odd streaks in them this year. I upped the light but was worried it was virused. Luckily, I had it tested and it's clean.

    man, one of these days...I'll be growing the plants with the 3 foot spikes! And taller!

    Those are both lovely. Goldenzelle is always a good bloomer.
