A little pink flower.

by Janice
This flower just bloomed for me in an old wheel barrow in my yard. I also have some verbena, which is the wilted leaves you see in the pic, but the bloom is from a plant with long, slender leaves that resemble a type of bulb. Love to know what you think.

      @Susie Thanks so much for posting this link. I had some rain lily bulbs given to me years ago. But never new what they were till now . Living in MO I have to put them in pots so they can be brought in for the winter . I set them out in the spring and year after year the bloom !!

    Thanks for all the input, everyone. I hate to admit it, but since you all have said Rain Lily it made me remember that a friend I used to work with had given me a few plants years ago and I guess it hadn't bloomed in so long that I forgot I had it. I'm glad I hadn't pulled it up and thrown it away before I saw the blooms. Sometimes forgetfulness is rewarding, right? Thanks again.
