May Day! May Day!


Things have been a little busy around here but I couldn't let Garden Bloggers Bloom Day go by without at least a token post.  It occurred to me that the blooms of one plant in particular are cause for celebration this May 15th.  The beauty of Zephyranthes rosea (or could it be Habranthus robustus? ) lies in more than their delicate pink blooms.  It's what triggers these blooms that makes me especially happy.  My fellow gardeners know what I'm talking about: there's a reason they call them RAIN lilies!

I love rain lilies, we grow them in containers.

We are in the midst of rainstorms. We have gotten 2 1/2 inches in the last 36 hours! Hallelujah.
