When I first saw them, I was 17 or 18. My sister, 3 or 4 yrs, brought my mom a handful of these flowers. Upon investigation, Suzie had gone next door and picked them, without permission. Mom took her next door to let the lady know what she had done. I don't remember if the flowers came back to our home or not. I guess she really liked them because she had never done anything like that before. And, as far as I know, has never done it since. I fell in love with the flower that summer and have been enjoying them ever since. I didn't find out until today there real name. We always called them Surprise Lilly; this year, they really surprised me.
