After an enthusiastic rain this morning,
my husband went out to mow the lawn this afternoon.
Its growth had been rapidly accelerated by the recent
(and desperately needed) rains.
He came into the house to announce the sprouting
of several "surprise lilies"!
I went out to take these pictures of some of my favorite flowers!
Very soon, they will have popped up
(and I mean as much as 3' up)
all over several of our flower beds.
