On the way to work

Living in a small town and working on the outside of San Antonio allows me to take the back roads to work each day.

This German Fachwerk style home is located outside the big town of "Ogden". After the rains this yard has exploded into a bloom that looks like it would glow in the dark. If you click on the picture, you will can just barely see the red blush of the oxblood (school house) lilies behind the fence.

This beats traffic any day.

That is a beautiful house. Love their back porch! I wonder if those are some kind of 'rain' lilies? I have some similar to those that sprount unexpectedly around the rose garden.

Oops. I forgot to tell you - yes, these are rainlilies. Save the seeds that come out on top of the flower spike. Sprinkle them where you would like some to be in your garden. Then with the coming rains....
