These pale pink lilies peek out of nowhere every August just around my birthday.
It is nicknamed Naked Lady or Surprise Lily because the flowers appear on sturdy, leafless stems in late summer, after the leaves have withered and disappeared from the spring.These bulbs came from my grandmothers garden many years ago. I've moved them to every house I've lived in.
Every year they produce even more bulbs giving me huge groups of flowers.
They don't really like to be disturbed so if you dig them up you tend to lose that seasons bloom. But be patient, because they come back the next year ten-fold.
As you can see Otis has no fear. He managed to go from a chair to a bookcase, to the top of a curio cabinet to a shelf suspended about 10 inches from the ceiling. Once he was up there and decided it was no big deal he turned around on that skinny little shelf way up high and came back down. Of course this is the same "tree climbing cat" if you remember. If you don't here is the post and photos.
