We are in the early days of amaryllis season; it’s just the start of the second week since I planted the bulb. These are the days that remind me to be patient. That’s easier on a day like today, when temperatures are expected to (finally!), rise above freezing.
While it quietly grows, the amaryllis is in good company here on the bench with a view of a Southern-facing window, with plants that have grown larger and larger over the years. And so we all turn our faces toward the sun, grateful for the warmth and the light we will receive.
