Rain is coming in showers and bands here this morning. Even though these photos were taken two hours after sunrise it is still so dark because of the cloud cover that I had to use a flash. I call these hurricane lilies because they often bloom in September after we get the first heavy rains in August/September due to a storm system from a hurricane. This year we have had over 7″ of rain beginning the first of August and some of these lilies bloomed and died down almost a month ago. We did not get the whole area planted in these bulbs to bloom at one time like normal. They normally start blooming about two weeks after we get 2″ of rainfall in August. Keith Kridler Mt.
