  1. So many interesting pictures! The green of the ibis, the fast-growing RICA campus, but I was intrigued by the lilies! I read that they also grow in CA. They bloom and fade and go dormant until the next watering. One lady waters precisely 25 minutes every 6 days to keep them blooming. Where Dad homesteaded in Montana we had gumbo lilies…with a vastly different look! Thanks again!
