Flowery Friday: Amaryllis.


Sometimes it’s really easy just to sit, with a goofy, deeply satisfied grin on one’s face, and marvel at a flower. Especially when that flower belongs to an amaryllis.


  1. You can feel goofy with an amaryllis because it does all the work and is a goofy sort of flower. Nasturtiums are too. We tend to be more serious with flowers that we put more effort into, or some flowers that are more refined.

  2. Someone gave me one of those once and it blossomed amazingly. I planted it in the garden, where it surprisingly survived winter and blossomed every year in June for about three years. They’re pretty darn cool plants!

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
