  • What a weather map today. Blizzards on one end and monsoonal rain and tornadoes on the other. I just decided to take a couple of pictures of my wife's flowers she babies in the hopes the straight line winds miss us today. The red amaryllis had a really big cluster of red blooms before the last blow but unfortunately they got snapped off and the blooms on the plant now opened a few days ago and have lost some brilliance. My sister brought an amaryllis back from Holland but she keeps it indoors in New Jersey and hers just bloomed also. The other amaryllis at the base of the hibiscus is a striped one that is a few days from opening. It's constant work around here keeping a yard that is almost four acres but I guess it's better than pushing a snow blower around. Did I mention mosquitoes?
