Beautiful little lily. What sort of lily it is? Where does it come from? I have never heard of rain lily.

Thanks Kat, they are native to central and South America, and are called rain lilies because they tend to flower just after the heavy rains, they usually only last a day or two but these have lasted nearly a week before going over.

Is it because you on the isles have more rains then Latin Amerika? ;-)
