With the arrival of a blooming flower, I assumed that last week’s amaryllis posting would be our last. Then the second stem showed some determination to grow. I trimmed the first stem (the flowers had begun to fade) and now we are keeping watch on the bonus bloom.
Things are looking hopeful. That a bonus bloom is looking to hold forth even as the days are growing steadily longer and the temperatures are mild has contributed to my growing Spring fever. In the next few weeks we may have a flower and Sassafras Spring (the day that I pack up my Winter clothes and declare the arrival of the blooming season).
