Thank you all! I think that last one is a type of alium, jp.

Too hot for tulips, eh? Herumph!

I'll take more pics when the inflorescence is fully out and post them.

Gardening in Texas must be a heck of a challenge! I was over in southern Ontario last summer (record hot summer apparently) and I was so jealous that they grow things like trumpet vine and morning glory easily. I think they grow well in places like Cornwall here but it's grim here up north... my attempts at morning glory failed miserably!

Hi Dave, the flower looks similar but the leaves are very different, they're long straplike leaves.

Susan those are lovely, they must be such a welcome sight!

Lovely flower photo's from everyone here. You must all spend hours in your gardens.
We have rather neglected our garden lately, but despite this, we have had flowers blooming.
All photo's taken over the last few weeks.
