If there can be “Christmas in July”, why not “Easter in October”.
My MIL lives in a senior apartment, which she fondly refers to as “the home”. The folks at “the home” have been watching Mom’s Easter Lily since its planting after Easter, on through the summer growth. Then what really got their attention were the huge buds that developed in early fall. And now, the “much anticipated” has happened….its blooming in early October.
I haven’t seen an Easter Lily bloom a second time in the same year….but I understand it does happen. Perhaps this cool, wet summer got it all mixed up. But anyways, the folks at the home view it as a gift.
