Blooming this January 15 (can you believe the month is half over already) is this gorgeous amaryllis. This is its second flower stem. The first one did its festive duty over Christmas week and lasted beyond New Year's. This wonderful flower is a cheery sight during our current deep freeze. Tonight's low predicted low: -20 degrees C (around 2 F). Brrrr, that's cold.
PS: I don't want to admit it, but there are still three Christmas poinsettias on the window bench - the kind that had gold glitter sprayed on the bracts by the florist at the supermarket. Well, who doesn't need a little glitter in frozen January?
