Amaryllis

My amaryllis last year was a serious disappointment – one flower stalk which began fading before it was full opened. I look forward to a couple of weeks pleasure from this one – two sturdy stalks, each with four blooms. A bit of spring in the midst of winter!

Winter Wonderland

It snowed here yesterday – quite a bit of light blowing snow. The drifts on my back deck were, let’s say, interesting. I was just able to open my backdoor enough to get out and shovel off the top step. Then captured a picture of the drifting snow.IMG_7290

And today my amaryllis is in FULL bloom – 8 flowers at the same time – never been this lucky before. The red just glows.
