surprise lily

not a daylily. this is a surprise lily. the leaves grow in the late spring early summer. then the leaves die away. and now in early august the flowers alone come up from the ground. they are small and lavender. and at the tips of the petals some are the softest sky blue. there is no extra charge for the raindrops…

surprise… lilies

a few flowers from the garden today.  and surprise some other lilies.  they are called surprise lilies because the leaves grow in the early spring and completely disappear before the bloom.  the blooms seemingly appear from nowhere.  and the tips of these petals fade to blue over the course of the day.
