Wordless Wednesday: Resurrection Lily

Resurrection Lily
 
ResurrectionLilyAlmost wordless: Early in the spring this perennial emerges as foliage only and is easy to overlook among the showy Daffodils and Tulips. By the end of spring the foliage dies off and disappears, but as summer begins to wane, the plant emerges from the soil once again. This time it rises up as a tall, one to two foot stalk, and blooms within days earning the name Resurrection Lily. [Click the thumbnail to the right to see the entire plant.]
