Noble Minerva








I can't even tell you how much I have enjoyed having an amaryllis in our kitchen this winter. Watching her bloom has been a daily pleasure and a peaceful ritual during the busy holiday season, a bit more beauty with each passing day. Now she blazes on the kitchen table, warm and bright in the cold heart of winter.

  1. That is a beauty, I didn't get given one this year but I think that always brighten up the home after Christmas decorations have been taken down. Jo x

  9. Gorgeous photos Jennifer - I love that you've captured the blooms emerging. I do love to see an emerging flower bud! The shapes, colours and form. Plants are so incredible. It looks fabulous on your table.

  10. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful introduction to your amaryllis, Jennifer! I love how you have captured the stages of her development. The three-year-old, Joy, in our household, has been beside herself trying to find the right words to celebrate the blooming of my amaryllis...now I wish I had written down all her proclamations to share with you :) xx

  13. It's so pretty and it matches your curtains perfectly!
    A lady at my nursing hoe has one that's getting close to blooming. She told me today that she was going to cut off the tops because they were lopsided No!!! I told her that was the flower and she agreed to leave them there. :)

  14. Beautiful... I have grown paperwhites in the winter but never an amaryliss.

  15. It is beautiful! I have never got one to see it bloom. Like the person in the previous comment I too have had only paperwhites and it was many years ago. What a lovely thing to do and see the beauty unfold.

  17. I love the long view photo with your table and perfectly matching window blind. It makes me want to go and search for a flower that will match mine. Hmm... black framed yellow, cream, and turquoise, auriculum perhaps. Yes! There is a flower for everything. Love your bud to flower series of shots too

  20. They're fabulous plants, aren't they? Big, blousy and beautiful. It goes so well in your kitchen too. Eleanor bought me a bulb for Christmas so I've just started it off, I'm looking forward to it flowering.

  23. I love the colour. I didn't plant one this year and I've missed watching it unfurl. Next year ....

  24. What a fun progression of photos of the magnificent flower as it bloomed. I meant to get a bulb to watch and just plain have not found one. But I do have a white orchid that is blooming that I will post about tomorrow. Love the sentiment of the flower in winter. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  25. I always go to buy one of these at Christmas but it never happens! This is an absolute beauty. I love the colours and the way it matches your blind so well. I'll go out and get this one when I get to the shops!! Have a wonderful week xx

  26. I love your beautiful flower. Last year I kept my bulb and wanted to see it flower again, but it only had big long leaves and no flower. Next year I am back to buying a new one.
    Hugs,
    Meredith

  27. I enjoyed seeing this! :) I had one for several years. Last year I purchased two on clearance at Home Depot and gave one to my DIL. Mine was a dud...never grew. SHE had never had one and it grew and grew and grew / she got such a kick out of it! This year I totally forgot about starting one so yours gave me a smile :)
