Naked Ladies, flowers that is.

Naked Ladies or Amaryllis belladona a very beautiful bulb that grows well without any more water then what it gets from the sky during the winter months.

It's long leaves die before the flower's stalk grows and blooms, thus the name. Some like to plant this with other flowers to hide the dead leaves but they have their own beauty.

It's so nice to have some color when the end of summer here is so dry.
