    My giant lily is about to bloom. It is about ten feet tall and has eight pods. I am hoping that we don't get too much rain in the next few days.
    This isn't a question; I just wanted to share my excitement.

    I've corrected the title so it gets picked up by searches ;-)

    Post some pics when it comes out!

    Michael F....... Thanks for correcting the spelling. Rain off and off to day and not much change. Yes, I will send pictures when it blooms.
    Cheers, samsam

    Here are two photos of the cardiocrinum - one taken yesterday and one today after a heavy rain. I will send another when it is in full bloom. Samsam
