Spring is Coming!!!

Spring never felt so good in Florida.  After surviving the coldest, snowiest winter, spring feels like a million bucks!

This week these lovely flowers popped up.



And this bloomed in my office!  I can't tell you how exciting this is for me because it means we didn't kill them in the winter hibernation.  This was the first year I put the Amaryllis' into hibernation because in South Florida they can live happily in the sunlight year around but I've read that it's really good for them to go into hibernation in winter so I've had them in the basement since September with only the occasional watering when we'd remember them.  I think hibernation did them well because these are really some of the prettiest flowers, so rich and full of color with really full blooms.

Spring is coming!  My cat is shaggy and losing his thick winter coat!! I can't wait for warmer weather!!!
