Short-lived Surprise Lilies

August bloomers, these spectacular flowers were already past their prime by the time I could walk out to photograph them. The blistering heat and windy rainstorms seem to have hastened their maturing.

But just down the street, a spectacular planting of drooping white flowers offset the draggled naked-stemmed lilies. I don't know the name of these large, white drooping clusters.
