I just wanted to show you this photo I took mid-November at the Squak Mountain Nursery. They had a few amaryllis blooming in pots for sale and this one was my favorite. It was all I could do not to being her home with me. I did the next best thing and captured her for eternity. That's what I call making the perishable permanent. This scene, featuring a bright red and white striped amaryllis, could be the December photo in a calendar. Don't you think?
My amaryllis bulb is doing fine, but I think her timing will be closer to celebrating Martin Luther King Day.
