Here we are at the last Eye Candy Friday of 2016. It seems like I should show you something momentous, yes? Well, I just so happen to have a truly fabulous amaryllis to share with you today.
Momentous, for sure. Epic, even. This blossom fully opened on Wednesday and it’s the prettiest amaryllis I’ve ever had. It’s not super tall, which I really like, and the flower isn’t huge but it’s beautiful. There’s another blossom opened now plus two more to go on this stalk and another stalk that will bloom later, I hope. I’ve found a lot of joy watching this plant grow and I’ve also shared that joy with my fellow bloggers as they’ve posted about their own amaryllis plants throughout the season.
And really, sharing is what this blogging community is all about. A lot of the time we share joy and we celebrate together but sometimes we share sadness and difficult situations, too. As this year draws to a close I can’t help but feel grateful for all of the moments we’ve shared together, the times you’ve laughed and cried along with me, the times you’ve celebrated my victories and cheered me on when I’ve stumbled, all of it really being about the joy I get from sharing my life with you here.
Happy New Year to all! And here’s to a peaceful 2017.
