late bloomers

July 30, 2009

The surprise lilies are up, suddenly and near summer’s end, as usual. There’s no signal of foliage, just smooth, single green stems that shoot up  and open into pink frills.


Mine are in unlikely places – in a clump under our sagging porch,  loners scattered in the yard – and the effect is a little like a botanical version of the ornamental flamingo.
