In A Vase On Monday – Miracle

In A Vase On Monday – Miracle

Every Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden encourages us to share a vase with materials gathered from our gardens. Today is Tuesday and although I passed by this lovely Amaryllis ‘Miracle’ many times on Monday I had scarcely a moment except to glance at it appreciatively and send a mental thank you to our thoughtful niece for the selection.

Described as a resplendent Symphony variety, deep cardinal-red with a velvety sheen, and one of the best, large, solid red varieties for holiday display, this sturdy-stemmed amaryllis began opening last week and arrived to this stage over the weekend.

Happy to be home again, we have been away dealing with health-related woes the past few days, so the miracle used in the title (besides the flower’s name) is that I am finding time to post. Taking time, I should say, to let flowers, photography and reconnecting with gardening friends, perform the miracle of nourishment and rejuvenation.

    I’m glad you’ve been given even a brief respite to be able to reflect and share beauty. May you be strengthened during these health challenges and given the hope to put one foot in front of the other.

    I’m sorry that you’ve been confronted with health-related woes once more, Susie. I hope the issues level out and allow your family to breathe freely again. Your ‘Miracle’ Amaryllis is a lovely thing and looks wonderful paired with the Anthurium. I’m thinking of you and sending supportive vibes.

    That is a real beauty Susie – it is rare to find such a perfect red, and shiny at that! I do hope you have time this week to admire it and simply enjoy that vibrant colour. And I hope the health issues are now resolved too. 🤗

    What a glorious deep red the hippeastrum is, Susie, and although I have moved in from always having a red one they will still always be my favourite! It sounds as if you needed this respite, and I hope that the week does prove to be an uneventful one for you

      You’re right Tony, the dracaena does look like a spider plant. It needs repotting or something. A spider plant would have been easier to grow.
