naked ladies

My friend, Dave came by with a few stems of these pretty pink blooms, they smell so pretty too. Hurry, someone bottle the scent, a faint sweet floral, I’d wear it. They are a variety of amaryllis known as ‘naked lady’ as they flower long after their foliage dies. Once everything’s looking really dead and composed, out of nowhere, long stems with delicate fragrant blooms shoot through the dirt, surprise!
