Amaryllis Papillo

I thought I would share with you the beauty that is on my kitchen window sill at the moment. It was a Christmas present from one of my oldest friends, Mary, and was a little stump when I received it. On pain of death, I have watered it and loved it and look what it has grown into....




Just a little bit of sunshine in the bleak mid winter!
