Late Christmas Amaryllis Dazzle for Valentine’s Day

amaryllis02.12.15It’s nearly Valentine’s Day and my Christmas amaryllis have just started to bloom!

Anyone who knew my late husband Charles knew how much he loved colorful fresh flowers.

For our eleven years together Charles and I had a garden of dazzling red amaryllis atop our dining room table instead of a Christmas tree.

I’ve tried to keep the amaryllis tradition alive since Charles died, but for Christmas blooms the bulbs must be planted by November 1st. This year I was distracted and missed the deadline by four weeks.

So I was a little late. Who cares? I purchased Valentine’s Day red roses for my dining room table for Christmas instead.

And for Valentine’s Day I have a little comfort and joy!
