Hi All,

Last Saturday evening's heavy rain on my garden has lead to a rain lily day.
This is the day 3-5 days after a heavy rain when nearly every rain lily in
the garden flowers.  The flowers only last a few days, but it is spectacular
while it lasts. 

Here is a list of the rain lilies blooming in my garden today:

Z. x 'Apricot Queen'
Z. sp. Labuffarosa and the selection 'Big Dude'
Z. sp El Cielo
Z. candida
Z. reginae
Z. grandiflora
Z. x 'Grandjax'
Z. x 'Sunset Strain'
Z. x 'Prarie Sunset'
H. x floryi, both green and purple base forms
H. robustus and the selection 'Russell Manning'
H. unknown hybrid
H. brachyandrus
H. 'Cherry Pink'

I took photos of Z. sp. Labuffarosa and 'Big Dude' this morning and put them
on the wiki.  The others were not open enough to photograph this morning.  I
hope to get more photos this evening or tomorrow morning, but heavy rains
are predicted again today and may reduce the show to shreds.

While I had the camera out, I took a shot of a fruiting Arum italicum.
