Not raining, and pouring

It's kind of insane how practically everything blooms at the exact same time. New appearances this morning included the Passiflora manicata to the right, Monardella, Arum italicum, Calochortus superbus, Nigella and volunteer poppies. These plants are native to 4 different continents* (5 if you count the aforementioned Ixia -- now in focus! -- that opened 2 days ago), all from different families, and all raring to go at the same time.

I guess they're all from more or less mediterranean climates, and judging by the number of bugs flying around these days, now is a good time to get pollinated.

* Assuming that Asia Minor is part of Asia and not Europe.
