It would seem that last week’s fretting about my amaryllis yielded results. On Saturday, I came downstairs to an exciting bit of growth.
Today, I moved the bulb to the lamp to make this picture. There’s even more flower stem to admire.
I am thrilled to see things take off and I’m looking forward to a flower in March, when I will be more than ready to abandon wool sweaters and warm tights in favor of Spring blooms and open-toed shoes. And yes, I’m being far more cheerful and optimistic than the current weather warrants. But that is what the prospect of a flower will do for me.
