More lilies

The red and white amaryllis suddenly flowered now, although it usually flowers in spring. The spider lily, which is relegated to a dark corner of my garden gives beautiful flowers everyday. The plant hunters of the eighteenth century were amazed by its shape and enchanted by its perfume!
Whenever there is a sprinkling of rain, the brave rainlilies open their flowers.


  1. Wow! I've never seen amaryllis flowering in July! The other blooms look great! Rain lilies are an all-time favourite!

  2. Wow, what a beautiful Amaryllis! And the spider lily öoks great - I saw one on the botanical gardens of Gothenburg last spring - and was fascinated.
    -Your garden must be heaven with all those exotic plants!

  3. Kanak, I was also surprised by the amaryllis.
