Ironically I did a post yesterday about my red waterless amaryllis…
Before last year I had never heard of a waterless amaryllis.
The collage below shows the growth from day 1 to day 20… left to right starting at top row. The last picture is my red amaryllis with the white one my daughter had at her office which she brought home over the Christmas holidays. The white ones are taller. This has been so rewarding watching this flower bloom with just a bit of sunlight and no other care at all. Unfortunately as of today, January 11 it is pretty much finished blooming and won’t bloom again. But for the time it was here it brought a lot of enjoyment and beauty. I’ll definitely do this again next year.
The prompt is: It’s time for another Pick a Word themed challenge. As usual you get four words to choose from.
The words are: Marsh – Stately – Shack – Scarlet. I decided to do all four.
Stately (Newport, RI – the Breakers mansion)
This week’s assignment, capture a scene with strong contrasting colors.
My choice for facade is this gingerbread house on Martha’s Vineyard. The entire facade is covered by beautiful wisteria.
