While I've been calling it a lilly, apparantly it's an Amaryllis. Whatev. Looks like a lilly to me, and I love lillies. It's been in the ground for about three years, and had nothing but the long flat leaves, until last week, when we noticed the blooms about to open. There's one more that hasn't popped yet. I had no idea what it was when I planted it, but I LOVE IT!!! What's awesome is that it's on my dear cat Tigger's grave next to the house. Where I just planted a gazillion wild lilly seeds. Will be so awesome next spring. Anyway...enjoy my pretty flower.
