Bulbs

Hi Everyone
Happy Saturday

Amaryllis bulbs have never been one of my favorites
Maybe it is because of  their name
it sounds too much like a armadillo to me
but....
a friend gave us one 

I have to admit I ignored this bulb at first
 Each day it opened a little more 
 surprising us with its beauty
my Husband even commented on it
 Elegant and graceful in this 
vintage enamelware bucket
With a beautiful hint of color
that got  pinker and prettier each day

 It has been a joy to watch
the beauty unfold
and has us all completely smitten
Regardless of its name
its a beauty

grateful for the thoughtful gift and a renewed interest in these pretty bulbs
linking for Pink Saturday

romantic saying for today
"Together is better in Love"

  2. Oh my, that last photo is amazing!!! I also noticed that we have the same dining room chairs, except mine are blue. :)
    I planted some paperwhites right around Thanksgiving, and am still waiting for them to gain height & bloom. But what fun when they do!
    Happy weekend,
    Zuzu

  10. So pretty. We got my grandfather a potted bulb one year at Christmas and he loved watching it grow and get ready to bloom. Enjoy!

  11. Happy Pink Saturday & New Year. That's a great post and sentiments. I'm wondering, did the room with the fireplace start out to be a dining area or did you transform it to one? Beautifully thought through and done! Great view too. Jenn
