My amaryllis is looking tantalizingly close to a bloom. It had better get a move on or it will be beat to the punch by the abundant crocuses and daffodils outdoors, both of which are looking close to flowering thanks to the unseasonable warmth we’ve had this week. Temps around here today will approach 80 again; a perfect way to transition into the Spring Break that begins at 3:05 tomorrow afternoon. I’m looking forward to the time off, a relaxed couple of weeks that will set me up for the marathon that is the last two months of the school year.
I’m always impressed by the stem and flower generated by a modest amaryllis bulb. It makes me smile every morning.
