Last week we had a huge storm cyclone and torrential rains. Though it lasted only for a few hours the howling wind put the fear of “Winds” in all of us. As the wind howled and screamed at our windows threatening to break the glass, my little daughter snuggled into my lap and stayed put the whole day. What came out of the awful storm was lot of fairy tales and stories woven by my little daughter’s awesome imagination and this beautiful Pink Rain Lily whom we have named Rouge. Another first bloom for me !
This is such a pleasant surprise for me as I had totally forgotten which color bulbs I had got. I am always amazed by these awesome natural events like the May flower, which blooms every year in the month of may without fail. All year round it shrivels with no leaves or flower but come May a leaf sprouts out and out comes the most beautiful flower. Another of this awesome natural events is the rain lily which blooms every time it rains. No matter how much you water it from different water sources and creating different rain scenarios, (I have tried it all) it blooms only when it rains from the sky. I wonder how it knows the difference.
