Living in Florida conditions you to crave the sun. Before I gardened I hated the rain, all it offered were dirty floors and a quick bout of depression (probably incited by all the extra mopping). That was BRL – before rain lilies. An unexpected inheritance from the prior owner, they started springing up in every corner of the yard. It took me a while to make the connection, but they start popping two to three days after a good rain storm during the summer. I’ve forced them once or twice to spruce up the yard for company. They’re not as flashy as they are after a real rain, but they’ll deliver a nice display. They multiply fast and come in a variety of colors. Locally, I’ve seen light pink, dark pink, red, and white.
