Xephyranthes

 I think it was last year some time when the lovely Ros from Bloom sent me an exciting parcel in the mail.
 It contained some very special bulbs, and this is one of the results.  I'd forgotten what it was, and the tag has long since gone west, so I set about investigating my mother's gardening books the other night.
 This was the result: Xephyranthes. commonly known as Rain Lilly.
 It is so beautiful and just a single flower so far. 
 -Thank you Bloom-
for sharing some of your garden with me.



Autumn has come and it's a wonderful time in the garden.  Lots of pinks at the moment and . . . loving it.

Pretty pinks! Rain lilies were one of the few pleasant things I found growing in our yard when we moved here many years ago. They are still a very happy surprise after a rain.
