Check below the soil. I am sure it is starting to wake up already and is busy developing roots.
I already have a few Massonia that have just emerged from the ground. Other bulbs (all seedlings in this case) like Drimia and Lachenalia have already followed the good example.

My bulbs are still hiding under a bench or under shade cloth, even though they only catch the morning sun. Even then the soft-leafed ones can end up looking all wilted and limp before springing back up. Not complaining about the climate, mind you, but the bulbs prefer it a bit cooler. I'm looking forward to some winter color while the rest of the collection takes a nap!

Daubenya alba, after 5 years finally old enough for flowers.
