Rain Lily

These pretty yellow lilies were blooming in the pot in the balcony the other day.  They look so beautiful.  But last only for a couple of days. 

Then they dry and set many seeds, which can simply be shaken back into the pot for it to grow back to pretty lilies later sometime.

Botanical name: Zephyranthes citrina    Family: Amaryllidaceae (amarlyllis family)

The white lilies were at R’s house at Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad.
