HUMMER VISITS NAKED LADY

on August 30, 2017

Every year the naked ladies return. Just as September arrives, the pond outside my sunroom/office windows welcomes the lovely Lycoris Radiata aka Spider Lily aka Naked Lady. This morning I was so lucky that a wonderful hummingbird chose to hang around a while. I was amazed he stayed for about 5 minutes and had a feast. Thank goodness for a handy cell phone camera!

These beautiful flowers are actually part of the amaryllis family. I love their color. 

If you want to add some color to your yard, porch, patio or pond, head over to BloomingBulb.com and check out all of their fall planting ideas. They have many Amaryllis and Lilly selections.

No way I can do the selection justice with a couple of pictures. They have hundreds of choices on sale. And, they even have a zone finder so you know the whens and wheres of planting. Someone you know love gardening? BloomingBulbs sells gift certificates.
