Blood liliesBlood lilies surround the fountain in our  back yard. Despite a regal and delicate appearance, this is a hardy flower, well suited to the hot Texas summer. The friend who gave the bulbs to Ed told him "You can just throw them down on the ground until you're ready to plant them. They'll grow anywhere." She was absolutely right. Now these graceful scarlet trumpets lend brilliance to late summer at Cactus Hill.
