Lovely Flowers from a Lovely Sister
And inside? This pretty wicker basket with moss in it and some weird bumps sticking up. Mystified, I read the label. Amaryllis! Oh wow! From my sister Theresa, who, knowing flowers and knowing me, knew that I would love these late winter blooms.
Now two weeks later, the flowers are in bloom. To watch them grow feels like I am in a time warp movie--it's so fast from bulb to flower. My kitchen is suddenly brighter and my mood is certainly lighter just looking at them.
Thank you, Theresa, for this surprise gift!
