Some Schizostylis, a water loving South African plant which has a daylily-like form, had naturalised the water race banks near Rooster Bridge. What a beautiful red! And such a surprise, a lily flowering in autumn.

 We commonly call this an autumn lily.
Schizostylis - I Think!

These flowers are a real signal that autumn has arrived. I collected my bulbs from the road-side water races. There are also some patches of pink, which are more subtle. Autumn rather enjoys the brighter red variety, I think!
