Popping up everywhere

This year we'll be seeing more spider lilies (lycoris) than we have for a few seasons. The leaves appear faithfully every year, but the rain at the right time does not. And volunteering and blooming now in a pot that has yielded a couple of other surprise items is a beautiful asclepias or butterfly weed (or Mexican milkweed, as some people around here call it). These past several days we've been seeing hummingbirds all over the yard.
