AMARYLLIS, AMARYLLIS, AMARYLLIS.......OH MY!!
OK -- I know the holidays are over and it is the beginning of a new year, but I just had to show off my amaryllis! This is not going to be a gardening blog, but I have SO MANY blooms on these things that my heart is OVER THE MOON happy!!
At the beginning of this new year I always admire flowers that grow from bulbs. Living in AZ, it is difficult to get tulips, narcissus, or other bulb flowers to grow; but amaryllis - NO PROBLEM.
Each time I look a these beautiful flowers, I think of how hard that bulb had to work to push itself through the ground. It is kind of like each one of us and we follow our path through life, we are each pushing ourselves to become more creative and more helpful to each other out there as we push up through the dirt.
Happy first day of this wonderful New Year!
