My kitchen window

20160329_085611.jpgI just love the fact that this Amaryllis begun to flower on Easter day and since then two more have opened up. There is also a new shoot coming out from the base of the bulb.

This probably isn’t the most fascinating story but having taken this over from my mum it tried to flower last year. However, the flower head dropped off before even opening. The other plant had never flowered before either. Mum had it for a few years but so far this year it hasn’t stopped producing flowers for three months!

In the background spring is definitely in action in the flower beds. It’s almost time to give the lawn a trim with the cutter set on high I feel.

Mum has an enormous amount of gardening knowledge – I’ve heaps to learn yet (daughter in training).
