A Lily for Easter

This was in full bloom today (after a night time temperature of 20°F), a week earlier than I’ve ever seen before, but just in time for Easter. Happy Easter, everyone!

    • I agree. These are very plentiful too and have a rather long blooming period. At the higher elevations they will be blooming in mid to late summer.

    • This was indeed early, but in a place where I have known flowers to bloom early. I saw some blossoms but was surprised to see them in such good condition after such a cold night.
