Isn't this a beautiful explosion of color. It is a spider lily that I have growing in my flower bed. It blooms mid to late summer here in NC. My son took the photo three years ago, when he gave me the flower. Wasn't it a beautiful gift, one that will always be here, and bring a smile to my face. The first smile when I see it popping through the ground in the spring, Then, I smile with anticipation all summer waiting for that explosion of color. Thank you, D.W.
