We put all our tender bulbs grown in pots in the garage late Sept / early Oct w/o water, letting the foliage die back near naturally before stripping the plants and moving them to the basement...imagine my surprise when I walked in there and discovered a few rain lilies blooming. Funny thing about it, we've basically been ultra dry (Aug, Sept, Oct) until yesterday when we got a couple inches, and what do you know? a rain lily came w/ the rain.

I agree I agree I agree
You can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

And that's what I love about rain lilies!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
