DAY 45 - Heading for the Sunlight

I'm going on a photoshoot today to get some more pics of area buildings and landmarks. In the meantime, I thought I'd do a quick post on this naked lady flower -- I don't know what the "real" name is for it. In the spring the long leaves come up and then die down. In August up comes the flower. This one, instead of popping straight up, reached around the corner of the porch toward the sunlight. Look at the bottom of the stem to see how it curves around the base of the porch.

Really interesting. I've always heard those called "surprise lillies", though I'm sure they have an official name.
