Time For Some Christmas Color 2020

Real Estate Agent with Mapleridge Realty, CT 203-206-0754 REB.0759001

This being a year of different, it seems only appropriate that n Amaryllis plant in our house would behave differently.  My wife's thumbs are typically as green as a lawn in a dry July.

However, her Amaryllis plant just decided to add some Christmas cheer to our home.

It recently blossomed with these 4 large flowers and almost made it so top heavy the stem couldn't support the blossoms.

Hopefully the color will last longer so the dining room can enjoy the cheer, as well as us.

Hello Ed - the amaryllis seems to coordinate well with the chair in your home.  A mistake from 2020 - I don't think so, it may be part of your wife's design theme for the holidays and it can work right into the spring season.

It is always astonishing how much joy can come from something as simple as an amaryllis when you open your eyes and your heart to such joy

Hi Ed- there's something very special about growing a beautiful flower from a very simple bulb. That flower is gorgeous.

That's beautiful, Ed. Amaryllis are such interesting plants. That certainly will brighten up your dining room!

Our Christmas cactus is blooming - we need to bring it in so we can enjoy it some more.

Oh, how lovely! And the Amaryllis is the perfect accent color in that room. There's something special about this plant - it always shows up at the right time and looks so healthy! Just looking at your photograph gives me joy!

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
