My Wonder/ Resurrection Lily Update

Resurrection/Wonder/Surprise Lily
 I promised to post pictures of the mysterious bulb that was blooming last week. Thank you for all that commented.  I had forgotten that I did have foliage that suddenly disappeared a few weeks prior to the bulbs sprouting. I had a great response of it being a Wonder Lily, more specifically a Lycoris bulb, some call it Naked Lady, Resurrection Lily, or Surprise Lily. (thank you Judy).
Pretty thing isn't it?  So glad I didn't pluck it from the ground.

They're known as Magic Lilies and they're beautiful! I always loved the scent of the ones we had. :)

beautiful flower. we have a lily called surprise lily that spring from the ground, no foliage, in the fall. it's red and has a cluster of small skinny long petaled flowers. the foliage comes up after it has bloomed.

A very brave Lily.....to just come out with bare stems and all....exposed to the world....It must be a really confident flower. She doesnt need all the foilage and green leaves...Just her.
I think its a sign from God...for sure.

I love Resurrection lilies. My parents have a huge patch of them in their yard and they surprise me every year!
