Winter Blossom Beauty







Look at the beauty that greeted me this morning. How could this not make you start your day with a smile?! I love this Amaryllis - the color never comes out really true in photos - it's actually a coral color and always has double petals. It will have only three blooms this time around, but hey, I'm happy! So lovely. I also have a red one about to burst into bloom - probably the first of four blossoms will open tomorrow. So you'll be seeing it in the near future too! Just thought I'd share the beauty with you on this cold but sunny winter's day. February is almost over... yay!!!












Peace,
Linda

How beautiful Linda and what a sight amongst all the white outside this winter. These are so much fun to grow in the middle of winter and bring so much joy once they bloom...and...it's my very favorite color. Just Gorgeous!
