amaryllis bloom / january 21, 2013
My mother gives me an amaryllis nearly every year and it's always such an exciting treat when it opens up. I try to get them to last and re-bloom, but usually they just send up leaves. Once I did get a slightly deformed squatty flower in the middle of the summer, I was so pleased with it.
We are mostly healthy in this house after a restful week-end and hoping to stay that way! Sadly Big Smith didn't get Martin Luther King day off, I could have used the extra day. I wanted to do something to recognize the holiday for Little Smith, but he seemed to young to understand any of the suggestions that I read on line. I think next year he will be old enough to 'get it'. Do any of you have good suggestions for observing MLK day with little one's?
