Happy Spring!

Just when the winter holiday amaryllis frenzy was over, Smith & Hawken came out with spring amaryllis bulbs. I chose one called "Lemon Lime' which in due time produced two stalks, one short and one 22 inches tall. Once the shorter stalk's flowers opened, the weight of the blossoms caused it to fall over. Here's the rescued flower head in a jar, sharing space on a window shelf with a pot of double pink impatiens raised from fall cuttings. This exquisite flower was certainly a treat for the eyes and the spirit after some rough news weeks in the Queen City.
