Naked Ladies

So this weekend, I left my house and notice an odd flower formation in my front yard. I couldn't remember planting something there. And I didn't recognize these funny looking things.

They remind me of snapping fingers. I took that picture Sunday, it was like they were coming up out of nowhere.

Today, they are happy flowers! I know them, I've wanted them for a while, but I seriously don't remember buying or planting them.
My girlfriend Lisa called them "Naked Ladies". But I remember 2 years ago, going to Cox's and asking them for some, the saleslady looked at me like I had 5 heads! She had never heard of Naked Ladies. I seem to have a recollection of them also being known as leafless lilies.

A ha! After a bit of searching, there is such a thing as Naked Ladies. Hot dog! Also may be known as the Belladonna lily or Amaryllis.

Irony is ironic sometimes - I was just at a girlfriend's house today and for the first time saw HER Naked Ladies! (and I'd never heard of them before either, but they DID look so lily-like and pretty though - I totally want some now!)
