PROIPHYS-AMBOINENSIS/ CARDWELL LILY

This Cardwell Lily has had one leaf for the longest time. I was beginning to think it would never bloom again. Then without any hint that something was about to happen it sent up this short flower stalk. One minute nothing and the next—- there it is. Just as I was thinking of complaining that the flower stalk was too short and surely the loose bunny would munch on it—it grew. Now some of the individual flowers are opening. I wish I could get some better photos—but white is really hard to photograph especially since there isn’t full light in this part of the garden. If I let in full sunlight it would burn this delicate beauty. Please remember to use the PicLens which highlights the details of the photos.
