Thank you Jim.

A lot of my Rainlies are species. There is a lot of variety in naturetoo 
of these.

I built those shelves myself.  Had fun fitting them in with the steps. 
Very handy they are too, for keepinga close eye on small seedlings.

The green shelves in the porch I inherited from myparents, so they are 
extra special. Bracketed to the wall of the house asI came from 
Wellington where earth shakes were often part of life.

And raised containers make life soooo much easier as I get older.

As for the query ofthose 2 yellow Zephyranthes, one of the people in the 
Facebook Thai Rainlilies Club, put me right on them.  One is Z. jonesii 
and the other is Z. dichromantha.
