“No Rain = Rain Lily”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Today, I am going out very early to do some garden work before the heat gets too bad. As soon as I finish this post, I’ll be starting.
But before I start, I had to share this unexpected flower. For many years now, I have had rain lilies in the garden, but lately most have not been blooming. I don’t know it they are overcrowded or what, and being such small bulbs, I guess they have been overlooked. Imagine my surprise when I saw this yesterday.
What’s so surprising? Well, we haven’t had any rain in weeks. These lilies need a good rain shower to start blooming. So, why, with no rain, are they suddenly blooming? I have been watering, but I have done that in the past, and they haven’t bloomed. I can’t answer this, so I’ll just enjoy this pretty, petite, pink flower.
