Rain Lilies

September 2, 2009

My yard is sprinkled with Rain Lilies this week.

Both the rain and the lilies are welcome sights here in San Antonio.



  1. I've never heard of those before but they are very pretty!

  2. I too was unfamiliar with Rain Lillies and am so glad you posted photos to introduce us to these beauties. What a lovely sight indeed!

  3. So glad you got rain! The lilies are beautiful and make the rain doubly nice =-)
