Our Amaryllis bloomed in time for Christmas. The 7yo was thrilled, and so proud, as we went from one to two to three to four flowers. It stood tall and vibrant on the dining table throughout Christmas and New Year and is only now fading away. I will let it wither and I will cut it back and care for it; and hope that it blooms again for us next Christmas.
[This week with temperatures in the dangerously cold region I haven’t ventured out much into our initially white, now patchy and icy, garden. What snow is left is now brown and dirty, the garden gouged from the ploughing and clearing. Bushes bent and splayed from weight of snow. Any days where the temperature crawls up to anywhere near zero feel positively balmy. As I sit wrapped in a blanket, I dream of spring!]
