    Can anyone help me ID this lily. She's an annual.

    I forgot its name...

    Eventhough I live in the Philippines. Annuals do have their own "Clock"

    During December, The leaves wither back leaving only the bulb, and during summer usually the leaves come out first before the Flower. But this year It decided to give me a flower first then the leaves.

    She did not gave me a flower last year, but this year she just surprised me.

    yeah that's right stateless, it's really a bummer. I was going to picture it and make a tag of it.

    During relocating it to find a better spot for a taking a picture, I accidentally damage it.
    I only notice it when I point the camera at it...

    other than that, I like the subtleness of the color.

    Yeah it got several names, as of now I like the "Football" Lily, just in time for FIFA World Cup...hahaha
