Surprise Lilies!

These pink lilies have apparently "self propogated" themselves as I used to have only one stem a year appear. This was a delightful surprise! We could see them outside our dining room/living room windows.

Here is a closeup of them. I was fortunate that I took the time to photograph them as they only lasted a week. We had some torrential rains that hit them hard over a period of about four days after these shots were taken. They were never the same and no new stems appeared this year.

And finally, this is what they looked like after a rain one morning. They looked lovely with the raindrops (like little diamonds catching the light) but the blooms were pounded too long to be able to photograph them again after the rains ceased.
