Naked Ladies

My mother always called them surprise lilies. I love'em.

Constance, this is certainly NOT what I was expecting when I saw the title of your thread. But then I come from a country where one of our more famous guy groups is called "Barenaked Ladies"

The flowers are beautiful.

I'm no gardener, but I have several sets that were in the yard before I bought my house. This year, they bloomed twice, which I haven't seen before.

I love 'em, too, Connie. There must be hundreds in my back yard alone. The original lady of this house was quite a gardener, and every spring and this time of the year I'm treated to an amazing floral show.

I first knew them as surprise lilies, but naked ladies is more fun to say.

As in, "My yard is full of naked ladies."
