Once when I was 11 years old, my mother was driving us home from school one august afternoon and said,
Oh my, look at all those naked ladies in that yard!
Zoop. My sister and I turned our heads quickly to the right. Only a yard. With flowers.
Mamma explained that they are called naked ladies because they have no leaves clothing their stems.
These days, I hear people call them spider lilies.
Our first lady opened today.
