It really doesn't take much

February 12, 2011

It really doesn't take much to brighten up a corner, does it?

A few early spring blossoms
A camellia stem
Some ferns
But this amaryllis is a soooo amazing! I'm glad I planted it late so I can enjoy now, after the holidays.

  1. OH Kristen! You are making me so hungry for spring! It is so dreary here in Central Illinois. I can't wait to see the flowers and green grass!

  2. flowers always make my day, too!

  3. How beautiful!!!!! Our camellia are not blooming yet. Thank you!

  4. What is it about beautiful flowers that's so uplifting? I don't know, but it works, doesn't it?! And I'm always behind in getting my paperwhites and amarylis planted for the holidays too, but I guess that's not such a bad thing after all -- as you said, good for some post holiday cheer in the house.

  5. wow--that amaryllis is stunning! Have your roses started to bloom yet? I hope you have gotten yourself some chain mail gloves to wear now in the garden when tending them! Hope your trip to Maui is fabulous.
