Everyone needs a flower in their future.
I try two new varieties of Amaryllis/Hippeastrum every winter.
These bulbs get put in the garden every spring to produce many more blooms for years to come.
But for now, I need a flower when it’s cold and my garden in brown.
I need a flower when the gray skies make me blue.
I need a flower in January.
No other bloom will do.
I appreciate the giant, gorgeous blooms of the Amaryllis.
Glowing in the window like my own little sun.
Reminding me that winter will end and spring will come.
