A New Amaryllis


This bulb was only planted on Friday and yet has already visibly grown.  My husband and I find such pleasure in watching these grow and bloom that we got a new one for this season.  The previous one’s leaves are still green and needs a time of rest before hopefully flowering again.  They seem expensive when you just look at the price of the bulb, but they give us months of enjoyment, much longer than an ordinary bouquet of flowers would.  This time I did a double splurge and purchased an attractive pot with its matching saucer.  I also find amaryllis to be an inspiring subject to paint.

Muttering around in my mind about getting rid of stuff, I realized some things I have kept because people in books did and then someone was happy to stumble upon these “treasures”, but in all honesty, who will rejoice at finding a collection of “Organic Gardening” magazine from the 70’s and 80’s?  I have only consulted them 2 or 3 times myself.  I am unhappy with parts of our house and may have a serious clean-out.  One brake is what do I do with the stuff?  Where do I throw it away?  (There is no away.)

About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
