Brackettville Rain Lily

We don't usually see Rain Lilies unless it's actually rained, but my yard is full of weeds, not grass, and I've been watering the lawn weeds rather religiously lately. Trying to get stuff growing so that when we finally get our chickens, they'll have a nice salad bar to munch on.

Imagine my surprise when I saw some Rain Lilies in the yard the other day! It was at sunset and the most amazing thing was happening. The shots are grainy because I'd lost the light, but this one little beam of light was hitting the base of this Rain Lily and it looked like it was glowing.

It looks like light is coming from the flower. Very interesting and yes...another flower I never heard of.
