The chorus of Amaryllises

Amaryllises insist on
 being center stage
Barbara Muir © 2022

A couple of weeks ago I bought three Amaryllis plants, not
in bloom.  If you are even slightly down about the state of
the world, or are anxious about the coming new year, this
flower is the antidote.  It takes a long time to move from
bud(s) to bloom.  It soars up like a green arrow, with leaves
surrounding it, and then the magic begins.

And it is impossible to look at these beauties and not feel
an enormous joy, just for the luck you feel getting to see
this. For anyone entering the room it is a feast for the eyes, and
for an artist it is an ecstatic eye full, and absolute proof that
the world is good.

Let's leave it at that. Happy Holidays.

Have a loving your life day.
