Fire Lily

 My fire lily is flowering its little heart out at the moment and I love it.  I think even more than daisies.  The one very strange thing about fire lilies is they have six stamens and six petals.  I am sure I read somewhere that plants only liked odd numbers. As in five or seven petals.  Tomorrow I will have to look closer around the garden, to see if that is true for other plants.  That is if they have not all died in this very, very dry summer.
