These beautiful amaryllis blooms grace my kitchen window-sill with cheer, bringing pleasure each time I see them. The potted bulb was a Christmas gift from a good friend who also loves flowers. The miracle of that bulb unfolding and growing was impressive to experience. It began as a teeny little poke of green just barely showing above the potting soil and quickly grew into a three-foot beauty topped by five beautiful cherry-red lovelies. My friend and I often exchange lily bulbs or flower plants to mark special occasions. Cheers to everyone (and thanks to each of you readers who follows this blog!). Hope your day is as lovely as these flowers.
