    Thanks. I don't know this name, seems to have the common name Winter Daffodil, yet looks like a crocus. But I'm not a gardener; maybe I've been seeing these forever.

    It is related to Amaryllis.

    In a tiny vase on my mother’s dining table, collected from her garden.

    Autumn flowers as bright as these are such a rarity where I live. But seeing these tonight has given me a thought for 2021. How lovely to be able to pick for indoors at this time of the year.
