Today I was down on the ground working on my trike when in the distance I saw a color that I was not accustomed to seeing in that location. Over by the creek under a dead tree limb was growing this lovely clump of Oxblood Lillie’s. The Oxblood springs up after a rain in the fall putting on a spectacular display of deep red color for just a couple of days and then its gone. They are not native to Texas. In fact they were imported to the states from Germany years ago. Each fall I see them growing at older houses, in ditches by the road and like these, in a very unlikely spot away from danger of the lawn mower. These pictures don’t show the deep red color, but I keep them for the days this winter when there is no color.
