Or…Hermine Hearkens Horticultural Happiness?
These came up right after TS Hermine wreaked havoc on Texas. They are out in my yard { really Robyn? In your yard? Not growing in your livingroom?…smart a*s } Not being a TX native I haven’t a clue what they are…but they’re pretty

Oh…and I forgot to show you what sheets of tropical rain look like…my camera does not do justice to the amount of rain we received. That is NOT water coming off a roof…that is straight from the sky.

You all have a great day. I’m off to sew a cover for a Kindle that I promised a child of mine.

Those look like red rain lilies. They can’t take the heat, so they come out after a big rain, usually when the weather gets a little cooler. I also live in Texas, although I grew up here in San Antonio. I wrote a little about what Hermine did to us around my “neck of the woods”. The eye passed directly over my house!
