We’ve reached the point in the late Winter when there is a hint of light at the eastern horizon when I come downstairs at 5:30 each morning. The amaryllis greets me on these early mornings and the flower seems tantalizingly close at hand.
That’s fitting for the time of year when daylight is lengthening by a few minutes each day and the promise of Spring is at hand. Once it takes off, the amaryllis is impressive. I’m looking forward to the flower, which is right on target for a Spring Break bloom.
