Worth the Wait

The smaller Amaryllis has bloomed and it was well worth the wait!  Soft delicate blooms.  I love them all!

And big brother is still hanging in there... 2 of the blooms have withered, but one is hanging on...

They only last a bit and we only have them one time a year, but what a burst of beauty!

In the Bleak MidWinter... we have COLOR

One of the blessings of living in the South comes in our flowers and plants. We are rarely without color in bloom somewhere and this winter has been no exception.  My husband planted pansies and kale in pots around our back yard.  They have been smiling our way and providing bright pops of color in the midst of dreary gray days.  Here are a few pictures...

And inside we have Amaryllis... one, as seen in earlier posts, has been growing at a much greater rate than the other and WOW!  Has he shot up!  And the blooms are gorgeous!

The smaller of the 2 is coming on strong and will have a bloom open very soon.

Here they are together...

The little guy is doing his best to catch up!
