RAIN LILIES…MONSOON RAINS ARE ON THE WAY…

Rush Hours!! It’s half past twelve… It’s time to pack my bags and rush to get the cab. A five minute delay would end up waiting for an hour for next cab. I boarded the cab and it’s just thirty minutes drive to home. The day ended well!

I start my morning with a visit to my garden. Chirping tailor-birds, buzzing bees, fluttering butterflies, gleaming sunshine, fresh air would rejuvenate your mind every day.

And today, pathways are ornamented with plenty of little, colorful lilies. They are the nature’s weathercock to forecast monsoon rains!!

Growing rain lilies (commonly known as Zephyranthes) from bulbs is much easier than growing any other lilies of Amaryllis family. Plant and forget it. They bloom profusely on the onset of monsoon rains.

Zephyranthes bulbs look like shallots and multiply rapidly. I got pink and white color rain lilies from my friend and propagated the plant along the pathway in the garden. They are ideal for pavement and create a beautiful border. The six petal trumpet shaped flower lasts a few days which attracts better-known pollinators’ bees and butterflies.

Let’s hope.. Monsoon rains are on the way..

With luv,
