Season's Change Second Edition...Spring Week 5

For a whole year I will try to find the awesomeness 
included in all four seasons,
perhaps the weather or a nature shot...
maybe display the holidays in turn
who knows?
The sky is the limit.
More Spring in my garden...yes please!
I don't know the name of this lovely flower but I love the rich color.
My mom gave them to me and I planted them after last summer was over I think.  Her garden is full of them, I know they only bloom once a year so I am hoping that they will survive the heat over the summer so I can watch them bloom next Spring.

Now you see that blurred little shrub in the back?  Now that is my chili plant.  What is a Mexican household without a chili plant right??  Well, to be honest I don't eat chili it's really my husband that likes to eat it.  I eat salsa but not too hot.
 
Anyways, during last Fall a terrible plague or pest almost killed it, all of its leaves fell and all was left was a dried stick.  But it is thriving and blooming so hopefully we can have a nice not so spicy salsa over the summer.

How is your Spring and blooms coming along my dears?

  1. Beautiful flower. It looks like a breed of lily, although I am not totally sure! Yay for the chili plant bouncing back. You will be able to have a great homemade salsa season.

  2. It's "amarilis", my Mom always had them, and I have them also ;) Great flower, doesn't need so much care, and it blooms over and over again! I have them in pot, so after bloom stop watering them, and keep dry and dark until new leaves come up. But outdoors you just leave them, they are great survivors!
