Amaryllis in Bloom

Last week, our rescued amaryllis began to bloom!  Three are flowering now, and one more is busily forming buds.  Such thick, velvety petals and beautiful curves — a delight to view outside the kitchen window.

The last few weeks have been a fine time for both new flowers AND new babies to make their debut: congratulations to our many friends who have recently welcomed little ones!

May is an excellent month to enter the world.

Up They Come

I stepped out to peer at the latest construction handiwork next door.  On my way back inside, these leafy fingers waved a surprise hello from our front garden beds.  Joy of joys!  This is now one happy Friday afternoon.
