Amaryllis

There are lots of new plants in my garden that began blooming while I was away. Two years ago, Ellen Guerrant, a very talented quilting friend gave me a few amaryllis bulbs and they have really multiplied this year. I love the bright red and just had to bring a stem inside.

And make a grouping of things to keep it company!
The plate with the lovely blue flowers was only $1 at a thrift shop. This huge blue platter was a great find at Goodwill for $3 with a tiny chip in it.
The amaryllis looks right at home on the table in my studio.
I'll see you tomorrow for Pink Saturday with Beverly.

  5. I wish I could grow amaryllis outside but I don't think it's possible over here. I can just about get one going in the house but they tske forever. Those beautiful pink trumpets are worth it though. Enjoy the weekend.

    love, Angie, xx

  6. Your photos give us a good close up look at the beautiful amaryllis. I have never thought to plant them outside. I love the vignette you made to accompany the pretty flowers. It's a good thing we don't visit the same Goodwill or we might have had to arm wrestle for that blue platter :-) That is gorgeous!!!

    Have a great weekend.

  7. You can't go wrong with the red, white and blue, with a little yellow, for good measure!

    You find the neatest things. The flower is just beautiful.
    I wanted to answer your comment to me, I made 6 of the cookbooks for my family, but not one for me. LOL.
