Rain lilies everywhere!

Evening rain lily
Cooperia drummondii

On my way to San Marcos yesterday, I was amazed to see all the many rain lilies blooming everywhere! Pastures, ditches, yards, highway right-of-ways. This afternoon, I took some shots of the lilies in our Wildscape. They're beautiful.

I also snapped a shot of the tiny seedlings that are also coming up across the yard, thanks to the bit of rain we've have in the last few days....

The rain lilies are pretty, but I think they are very dangerous if ingested by cattle!

Isn't rain amazing? In the city, it was a necessary nuisance, but since moving to the desert, I am awed by it.
