What's that little yellow spot?
Went to the farm this weekend and after the rains last week, the grass had started greening up nicely. Then we noticed that these little yellow flowers were coming up all over.
They are tiny little things...
...one long, slender stem, no leaves, just coming up in random spots all around the yard in the full sun areas.

Even though they no bigger than a dime, they are absolutely stunning up close. This is a super close-up photo...isn't it beautiful? I'm sure they will be fleeting, see them once, blink, and they're gone but hey, at least we captured the image.
We call them pop up flowers but I'm sure they have a "real" name, ha.
Update: Thanks to all the kind commenters who gave us the info. The actual name is "Copper Lily"...also known as "Rio Grande Copper Lily" and the one we like best of all, "Rain Lily"...because rain is what brought them to our yard!
Thanks again everyone!
