Surprise! I'm not dead, just a slacker. But this one was too easy given that they just stopped blooming a week or so ago and I took pictures while they were. Lacks imagination, but fits the prompt.

Nice!
Thank you!
Lovely! They're very sweet.
Thanks.
And very pretty they are. What are they called?
LOL Take your pick: August lillies, surprise lillies, resurrection lillies, naked ladies, magic lillies... or, more correctly - (Lycoris squamigera) They are in the amaryllis family. The hefty foliage comes up in spring with the daffodils, then it disappears and you forget about them until late July or August when one lonely stem shoots up and has a clump of pretty flowers on it. No leaves, just a tall stem and flowers.
Pretty, such a lovely delicate shade of pink. And Surprise Lillies sounds like a great name for them.
They often are because I forget where I put them. :)
