In All Its Glory - Jacobean Lily

I thought I would pop in again and post another photo of the flower. I would say definitely some kind of lily. I think this is the best it is going to get and from now on it will begin to die. I am surprised it has survived the heat today as well as it has.

This is as far as I have ventured today as it has been so hot. Almost 5 pm now and still 31 degrees C. I think we are in for a hot night.

Fires are still raging across Australia and sixty fires are still burning across the ACT and New South Wales. Nineteen are out of control and six fires in Canberra and southern New South Wales are at emergency levels again. If this is what the rest of summer is going to be like, roll on winter.
Jacobean Lily .. Sprekelia in the amarylis family .. nice lily and good to have in the garden .. The fires still sound terriable .. lets hope they get some relief soon..

Fabulous shot of this gorgeous flower. Such a pity about the heat and fires, hoping winter and some relief comes soon.

This lily is beautiful, gorgeous colour. This heat is unbearable and just half an hour ago my fans and lights stopped working, I may have blown a fuse! The fires are also still a huge concern, as you said, roll on winter

Pretty lily. Those fires are so terrible and I pray for rain for you.

this is a beautiful "gift" to arrive in your garden. I hope you keep it and it multiplies.

Ouchies, that sounds wayyyy too hot! Hope it cools soon and the Autumn brings you plenty of rains.

An Aztec Lily indeed - I agree with @julzmaioro

@julzmaioro @casablanca Hi, thanks for the identification, you can both have a gold star.

Sorry for the late reply but we were out all day yesterday and I was shattered when we got home because it has been so hot.

@kjarn Thanks Kathy, isn't the weather terrible. Yesterday was so hot and our power went off for a few hours during the night last night.
I think we have another storm brewing because I can hear thunder in the distance. Still not much rain to go with it though.

@ludwigsdiana @dide @ethelperry @peadar @beryl @pcoulson @happysnaps @susie1205 @gijsje @merrelyn @seattlite @mittens @bkbinthecity @cocobella @koalagardens @robz @carole_sandford @tunia @elisasaeter @happypat @olivetreeann @jgpittenger @jacqbb @carolmw @haskar Thanks so much. I am surprised this beautiful flower has managed to survive with the heat and so little rain.
Sorry for the late reply but we were out all day yesterday and by the time we got home it was late and then we lost power for a few hours. Didn't hear a storm so don't know why the power went off. Still stinking hot here.

A spectacular lily and it's hard for us to imagine the fires as we have nearly wall to wall rain.
