Swamp-Lily, A Last Hurrah
A few days later, I was able to go take a look at it. The weather was threatening but, I did manage to make an ink sketch of it in my journal. Then it started to sprinkle so I took a photograph, and off the the shelter of my car I went! I painted the ink drawing from my reference photo.
I was a bit dismayed, as I didn't leave much room for the flower names......... ah well.
I call this 'A Last Hurrah' as the lily's bloom time is from June to October. I saw quite a few plants around the area, but all had long since bloomed. It's in the amaryllis family. A real beauty and uncommon in SC, though it can be found in the southern coastal area of the state. That's us :)
