"Summer" in a pot

I guess that 'summer' is a bit misleading, as these bulbs are Autumn Snowflakes :oops: :oops: . But what are they doing flowering in mid-January???!!!! :shock: :shock:

Thanks, Lea, for your kind comments. Hasn't the weather been :twisted: :twisted: !!!

They are pretty, though funny little things. When I have a gravel path (dreaming 8) 8) ) or a rockery with little pockets, these will find a great home. After they flower, the foliage stays around for ages, looking just like a little tufts of a tough grass. And they love neglect - just right for me! :lol:
