Summer Flowering South African Bulbs

Summer has arrived, and with it a great deal of rain. The rains are over for now, and the sun is shining gloriously. More rain, however is yet to come. We had a very cold, and wet Spring, and as a result the summer-growing South African bulbs were late to sprout. I thought I would share the wealth of some of the Summer-Rainfall region bulbs from South Africa's Eastern Cape province.
