Driving through the hills of Echo Park the other day we rounded a corner and came upon this steep hillside bursting with Amaryllis belladonna, aka Naked Ladies.   I've been seeing them popping up the past week or so, a sign that summer is coming to a close.
These flowers take me off guard every year.  With most bulbs blooming in the spring it's exciting to see these splashes of pink, and if I could get out of my car I would love to get a whiff of their sweet bazooka bubble gum scent.
