Rain-Lilies in flower

Rain-Lilies in flower at Kirby and all over Abilene. I am always amazed at how quickly these plants can grow a flowering stem in just a few days after a decent rain. They rarely have any leaves noticeable. Lilies grow from bulbs and the flowers produce large, flat, black seeds. Rain Lilies can now be seen in scattered areas at Kirby for the next several days before the flowers fade and the stems die back to await the next significant rainfall. I love their #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
