It is Fall, and bloom time for Nerines ... this one is Nerine bowdenii. A member of the Amaryllis family, native to South Africa. I have two types, the other one is a miniature kind and blooms a few weeks later, will share when it happens.
By the way, we're having problems posting pics in the Photography group, so I sized both these to be smaller than 500kb.

@Fernapple You are probably familiar with "Guernsey lilies"? they are actually Nerines ... it is believed that the bulbs washed ashore (in the 1700s?) after a shipwreck and that they then naturalized on the island πŸ™‚ I think they're a much stronger deep pink color, Nerine sarniensis ... There are several varietals.

Yes know those. When I used to do flower shows, we always seemed to end up with our stall next to a company that speciallized in Nerines.
