"Keep It Comin' Love" - KC and the Sunshine Band, 1977

When they came to see us in October, Mike and Eileen brought us a giant flower bulb as a gift. I joked that it looked like a giant turnip - while being very appreciative, needless to say! It's an amaryllis, and the tag said it was "striped".

Bulbs are always fun, aren't full of interesting to watch as they develop!

Well, our amaryllis. although coming alive a little slowly, has done itself proud. There are five beautiful blooms on the first stalk, and a second stalk is about to flower as well.

Here are a couple of photos of the beautiful flowers in our dining room window. I hope the flowers just keep comin', because they are giving us so much pleasure! It's like a signal that spring is just around the corner.
