Naked Lily



Acccording to Wikipedia, "Amaryllis (pronounced/ˌæməˈrɪlɨs/is also known as the belladonna lily, the naked lady, or an amarillo. The genus has two species and the more famous of the two, Amaryllis belladonna, is a native of South Africa, particularly the rocky southwest region near the Cape. It should not be confused with Hippeastrum, a flowering bulb commonly sold in the winter months for its ability to bloom indoors."
Our family loves beautiful flowers and the naked lily produces such awesome foliage in the spring and then beautiful flowers in August. God certainly has given a beautiful array of flowers to enjoy at this year.
