A Sea of pink

I just love the mass of flowers that bloom this time of year.
(Amaryllis) Lycorus sqamigera
Its common names: Surprise Lily, Magic Lily, and Resurrection Lily. It is also sometimes referred to as Naked Lady.
But it is also a sign that fall is near.

My tomatoes are the largest I have ever had.
But only 1 has been ripe this is the 2nd one so far.
This summer temperatures are some what cool.
So every thing is way behind

My first corn is in.
This is cheep E. 10 days old today.
This chick is part Cuckoo Maran

I love Surprise lillies! Your garden seems to be doing well and you were worried. Chick seems to have settled in.

What beautiful pink lilies! They look so pretty. And your corn looks absolutely scrumptious!

You are the second person to blog about the very same flower! They are beautiful, I've never seen them, so I don't know if they grow here, but I'm going to check into it, because I love pink flowers.

I love all of your pictures! That Cheap E is sure a cutie! I remember my dad bringing home chicks each year- some laid eggs and others ended up on the dinner table but we sure had fun with them when they were little.
