Macguire's bloom update

I had to go out of town for 3 days and I returned to blooms on both my Valerie Maree and Lady Diana. Six others potted up now have tall scapes and a couple of the dormant ones (still sitting in a box) have the tip of a scape peaking out, so I need to pot those up today.

Last year I was the one left out of the crowd when everyone was talking about how their Aussie bulbs were blooming. This year I'm reaping my rewards early!! BTW, neither year did I chill anything, but last year I got no blooms until March-May!!

Anyone else notice that Lady Diana scapes seem to be very short?? Last year's was and this new bulb's is as well. Pretty bloom on a very short scape!!
