    Beautiful Branka, we used to call the Swamp Tulips, Guinea Hen Flowers, they look so much alike I am sure that they are related. Are the yellow/orange flowers with the Grape Hyacinth (Muscari), a primrose?

    They bloom continuously for several weeks. Each stalk has a ton of little buds and they only have about 3 open at most at a time. But it might be a little different here, b/c of the many small showers we have.

    Cin, I doubt a little that this Swamp Tulip (Fritillaria meleagris - in northern Europe simply Fritillary, a flower from the family Liliaceae) it grows in Florida. It is native to Europe and due to changing land usage, it is now quite rare in the wild. The plant is commonly found growing in grasslands in damp soils and river meadows, where the soil never dries out.
    Maybe this is a kind of relative, have you got a picture?
    And the Yellow/orange flowers from my previous picture are primrose, yes.

    Branka we grew the Fritillaria when we lived in Maryland and yes they only grew where the soil stayed damp. I think that they are so pretty. The only spring bulbs we have in SW Florida are Amaryllis. Here are a few that I have blooming in the garden.

    I've seen pictures of those swamp tulips before ... very neat flowers.

    Ah, amarylis (or more accurately Hippeastrum), lovely flowers but I have never been able to get them to rebloom no matter what advice I followed. Finally gave up on them as anything other than a disposable plant.

    With temps in the 90's two weeks ago I thought Spring was ending and Summer was here. Fortunately our temps went back to the norms 50's to 60's and the Spring flowers are lasting a little longer. Here are some pics of my Spring Garden. I missed taking pics of the daffodils--the 90 degree temps did them in quickly.
