    Love this gorgeous pick! Those little pinkish flowers are an autumn crocus. The name will eventually come to me.

    I know the little crocuses you are thinking of. :-D But the lilies I’m referring to are about 2 feet tall…..not quite tiny enough to be a crocus. ;-) I think some may also call them Miracle lilies…?

    Wow… I would love to have those beauties. Magic or Miracle? No matter, both names work for me.

    You are talking about Resurrection or surprise lilies. I have heard many names for them. depending on where you live. The green leaves grow in the spring and die out, then the flowers pop up without foliage now. I have then all along my driveway. Does the autumn crocus have the foliage that dies out too? I have some of that, but never knew what it was. I also have Iris that comes up early spring that is only 3-4 inches tall. Beautiful purple flowers. Has anyone ever heard of them? My 1924 house was owned by an elderly lady with a very green thumb!

    Another possibility is ‘Amaryllis belladonna’ from Cape Town, South Africa blooms abundantly on stems 20″ or taller and has 3″ wide, strongly scented flowers ranging in colour from white to pink to bicoloured.
    ‘Colchicum’ or autumn crocus does have foliage appearing in the spring which disappears during the summer; flowers appear magically in late summer. The tallest variety is no higher than 6″.
    Yes, Peggy, there are darling, short, beautifully purple early spring iris which generally appear with the very early daffodils and can survive a snowfall… you are fortunate to have these cuties!

    Yes, Peggy’s got it! Resurrection Lilies! I knew there was another name for them!

    And that cute little Iris could possibly be iris cristata-Dwarf Crested Iris. I have some of those too! They are a wild native to our area, although they are not as plentiful as they used to be….. :-(
