Afternoon tea with a bunch of naked ladies!!

I thought the header of my post today would stir up some imagination, or even draw some readers' attention.
This summer, we really had some extreme weather ranging from well below average to reaching the hottest ever recorded in Australia. One of the things that we are accustomed to is weather which can change dramatically in one day, but not usually with such huge changes.

Despite the scorching heat which we've experienced, this naked lady a.k.a. resurrection lily, magic lily, or surprise lily, emerged in the midst of the searing heat, proving just how tough they are.

And it creates the most enticing aroma wafting throughout the house.

My white rambling rose tea set is a Robert Gordon creation, a famous Australian pottery.

Scientific name: Lycoris squamigera is believed to have been originated in Japan or China. It is a herbaceous plant with basal, simple leaves, which are not present when the flowers emerge from the crown. The flowers spring dramatically from the ground in mid to late summer, it usually takes only 4 to 5 days from the first emergence to full bloom. The suddenness is reflected in it's common name.
