Those ladies are at it again. In my front yard, naked as a jaybird, as us country folk say. They left their clothes lay on the ground in early spring, and disappeared. Now they are back, for the whole world to see. I have to admit, they are gorgeous. Even with their beautiful ink-stained faces. They always make me smile.
And here are their clothes that they just casually threw to the ground this spring:
I had forgotten about mine again, until I was out in the front yard checking on my new apple tree, and turned around, and there they were. I love them. They were given to me by my husbands aunt. She dug them from an old farmhouse. I just have the one small clump but it keeps getting fuller every year. The flowers get about 20" tall, and come back every year reliably in my zone 6b garden. They are also called Magic Lily, and Resurrection Lily. I like Naked Ladies, lol. So much funner.
