“Heralds of Fall”

Description from Happy Chick aka Harriet: Some call them "Ox Blood Lillies, or Surprise Lillies". The plain green stalks rise out of bare brown dirt, and shoot up to gorgeous bright red lily blooms. When they come up, I know fall is on the way. I have them scattered throughout my gardens in the back yard, and they are coming up now.

    They are getting taller, and some may open today. I will try to attach a pic. Sorry, can’t make it work, but the site is lily.

    Harriet, what a great pick! Thanks for the backstory, too, and for attaching the link to the pix! Very pretty! :D

    I tryed it, and the link works best if you don’t put in the oxblood lilly part.
    There is even a whole little movie about these people going out to an old site and salvaging bulbs (before the place goes under development), so they can send some to the property owner and they keep the rest. :-)
