Presenting: Mariposa Lily in Four Acts

I'm trying to embrace my impatience with the reluctant Mariposa Lily, instead focusing on the ever-changing story unfolding in my garden.  I'm beginning to learn that the other parts of the story besides the climax can be important, too as this Calochortus slowly unfurls her party dress in the sunshine.  She's striking quite the vogue-style pose in the photo above!

The drama builds...

An unexpected sub-plot emerges!

The tension rises and the suspense continues...


  1. She's so beautiful, even though she hasn't completely emerged. I understand your impatience...I still can't figure out if this is what we have growing above our road...the suspense is killing me!

  2. She is going to be so stunning.

  3. Very cool.

    You've hooked me ;~D
