These grow around my yard, and usually around late May / early June they flower. Does anyone knows its name?

They are a rain lily, but I remember when I was a little girl my daddy told me that they were
"Monkey Lilies" and that on rainy nights, monkeys came out and planted them to bloom in the morning. Of course I believed him, and even looked out the window to try to catch them in the act.... many many years later, when I saw your post, my first thought was "Monkey Lilies"!! thanks for the memories
I was so pleased with the DIY project on our back patio! I stained the concrete to look like tile. We used painter's tape to create the look of grout lines, and we used a concrete stain from Lowe's to stain the concrete. For a step by step tutorial, just click on the link below.

I did this on our giant screenroom deck... used garage floor paint and 10 yrs later only a
few spots of wear... really changed the entire look and feel of the space... advice... get knee pads!!!
This fireplace is all Travertine. Started with 18's and cut in half then hand chistled the edges for a rustic natural look. the roof part and the coined corners are from volcano
travertine. The moose i carved in with a 4" angle grinder and a diamond blade then dyed it with concrete dye. Whats cool about the whole thing you cant see. The mud work that lies beneath it all. Old school work...Not many even do it anymore. They (most builders) all want a blow n go quality thats why i started to focus on my concrete work.

Beautifully done! As to whether we would like the fireplace with or without the moose, do we
want the Mona Lisa with or without the smile? IT'S ART. Don't ask dumb questions!!
