Juliet, Your first photo reminded me of A. E. Housman. “Loveliest of trees, the cherry now / Is hung with bloom along the bough.” Your picture is perfect!
Wow! So beautiful!
Thanks for posting these; just what I needed on a gray day in lockdown.
Oh, good for you!My amaryllis is refusing to cooperate!!!
Later show us how big your amaryllis leaves get. Ours are huge! It bloomed in mid January and I will water and feed until early August. Then let leaves die back until about early/mid Oct (?) and then take out bulb and put in dark place until about early Dec. and then replant it for another hopefully Jan bloom!
Hi Gershon, a beautiful poem! Birgitta, thanksBill - you're welcome!Jenn - sorry you're amarylis is refusing to co-operate! I'm surprised ours is doing so wellRabbits Guy - leaves? This amarylis doesn't have leaves at all! How odd.
So lovely to see pink blooms and blossoms.All the best Jan
Yes, CGP, lovely to be reminded of Housman, and his poem we recited in junior school by the flowering cherry! I never could work out what 'three score years and ten' meant at the time, but now its meaning is pretty plain...
