A tulip from Bryant Park in New York City. I love that in the middle of all that concrete and traffic there is a lovely reminder to bloom where you’re planted.
Have a great weekend, friends!
Today I want to show you amaryllis number three: Double Dream.
She’s a showstopper! I adore the color and just look at all those petals. I don’t say this very often but this is a photo you want to click and enlarge – it’s worth it.
Too bad we can’t enlarge the weekend, huh? Make the most of the time you have!
While the white amaryllis continues to bloom (I’m now on blossoms 3,4,5 & 6!), Rosalie is now also in bloom. I adore the pale pink petals and vibrant green center of this variety. It’s delicate and lovely and perfect for spring.
And speaking of spring . . . it’s spring break! Dale and Hannah are both off from school next week and I’m taking a few days off as well. We’ll be enjoying what I think is our first ever vacation with just the tree of us. New York City here we come! Our plans include Hamilton, To Kill a Mockingbird, the Tenement Museum, Color Factory and whatever else inspires us. I won’t be blogging but I encourage you to follow our adventures on Instagram if you’re so inclined.
I’ll be back before you know it!
I hope you don’t mind another shot of my amaryllis, Ally. She’s a real show stopper – these are blossoms 3 and 4 you can see in the photo. There are still 2 more buds and another stalk is coming up. I guess I won’t need an Easter lily this year, I’ll have an Easter amaryllis instead!
Happy Weekend, friends!
My amaryllis continues to bloom spectacularly as there are now 2 blossoms and 4 (!!!) more buds. There’s possibly another stalk coming, too, but I can’t tell just yet – it could be just leaves. Either way, though, I’m going to have flowers for a while as I have two more amaryllis bulbs that have sent up stalks with big fat buds on them.
Our temps are decidedly spring like right now with the promise of even warmer temps tomorrow. I’m going to get out there and enjoy it and I hope you’re enjoying whatever is going on in your world right now, too.
