Surprise lily

Lo and behold, we're supposed to get enjoyment from the small things in life. We've been in our house for 26 years, and each year, a "surprise lily" emerges in our flower bed. It happened again this year, so I took some pictures yesterday. How pretty -- and how fragrant when brought into the house! I asked my wife about it, and she said it was started coming up from the time we moved in back in 1985. They say to stop and smell the roses. I say it's fun to be surprised by a surprise lily.
