FIRST RESPONDERS

There is not a plant in my garden that didn't respond to the wonderful rain we had this past week. So long overdue. One day I was looking at plants that were withered and dying and a day later it was as though someone had waved a magic wand and breathed new life into them. But of all the plants in the garden there are no plants that respond so dramatically as the rain lilies.
It may be time to divide this large clump of pink rain lilies.

Our native rain blooms a couple of days after rain. Unfortunately if a deer walks by he likes to nibble off the flower.

Just a couple of yellow zephyranthes.

And this stunning flower on the Trichocereus cactus greeted me this morning.
