Naked, but Not Naughty

Naked lady flowers were my grandmother Chloe’s favorite plant. The flowers are also referred to as Belladonna Lilies and resurrection lilies, and they may be naked (no leaves) but they are not naughty. When I was in California my mother had these growing in several places in her garden and the gardener had to move a few and had not replanted them yet so mom told me to take them home.

Now I have these special flowers in my garden and every time I look at them I will think of my grandmother and my mom, two of the most important women who shaped my life.
