I had intentions of some major yard work and cleaning but It has rained off and on all weekend. As a result I have been hanging out a Cup a Joe on Hillsborough Street with all the NC State students and hipsters!
Hurricane lilies (lycoris)
They are unusual because the flowers appear in the Fall with no leaves but once the flowers die the leaves appear and persist until Spring than die back. There are several species and now hybrids in colors from red, to yellow,pink, and white.
Also, the colchicums are blooming! They are like a giant Autumn crocus a foot tall!
So fragrant! And they are enjoying the cooler nights!
The annual perilla has grown into a purple thicket where I have allowed it to reseed.
I will leave you with white beauty berry
