Easter Lily

(Toledo, OH) Overnight bloomed one of my favorite flowers, an Easter lily we planted about four years ago.

Also known as Lilium longiflorum, the Easter lily traces its origin to the Ryukyu Islands, an archipelago that stretches from southern Japan almost to Taiwan.

The flowers have a delicate aroma, and add a touch of grace and beauty to my drought-stricken backyard.
