Funny flowers

How else to describe them?

Strange flowers without leaves, Uruguay

They grow like little sticks out of the ground with no leaves, make pretty pink flowers, then go away. Until this time next year.

Do you have any idea what they’re called?

      Naked Lady or Amaryllis Belladonna — good work! In fact, I wasn’t motivated enough to do a search 😉

    I live in Miami, FL, but grown in upstate NY. Tropical plants amaze me

    love your blog! Some I used to follow have gone political. Blah!

      Thanks! More on tropical plants in Uruguay posting later today. I do have thoughts about the suicide of Western Europe, but this is not a place to share them. As for USA politics, I think I expressed all I needed to by leaving ten years ago 😉
