Lilies galore

We are seeing more and more oxblood lilies, in four locations so far. For the first time in years, there will be spider lily flowers (lycoris radiata) on the oak motte; nine stalks have appeared thus far. The leaves appear without fail, but the flowers sometimes arrive and more often don't. Common white rain liles are everywhere. The diminutive yellow rain lilies are Jones rain liles. Today we found a tiny deep pink rain lily with a green-white center. This picture is taken with the toy camera and is, for that reason, crude and of low resolution, but, by showing the lily nestled among the blades of St. Augustine gress, some idea of scale is conveyed.
