Sunshine came strongly through the window today.
And lit up the amaryllis on the old dining room table.
We have had this blushing bloomer for twelve or fifteen years.
The original single bulb is now three.
And each one of the bulbs has thrown a flower stem.
The two buds that have opened have four blossoms each.
We’ve had snow on the ground for weeks.
Tonight the temperature is supposed to sink to fifteen Fahrenheit.
Having flowers such as these, in February, cheers a person.
