Reasons to be cheerful

Amaryllis, I cannot resist them though these last few years I have not grown them so much.  However I couldn't resist buying a couple when after Christmas they were 75% off at our local supermarket and I soon had them started.  The red one is in a special vase and growing only with water, the other which will be  cream touched with pink is in compost.   This one is brightening the kitchen.

The second is in the lounge and waiting to burst into flower.

Between them they may see me through lock down and certainly make me happy over Easter.
As if that's not enough on Wednesday we had a letter from our grand nieces, Amelia and Esme.  Drawings, a letter, a card, they have been busy and we were so pleased to hear from them.  I have put the rainbow in our office window facing into the atrium so that everyone in the building can see it.  Its probably against the rules but I don't care, who is going to come in and take it down.
I am coping fine with the lock down and not looking forward to the return of cars and planes and noise and pollution.  
I hope you are finding joy in little things, keep on keeping safe and well, happy Easter. 


  1. Sending Easter greetings to you and your family at this special time of the year Jenny

  2. Those amaryllis really are lovely. I'm usually given one as a Christmas present. Not the one just gone, though. Should have done what you did and treated myself to a bargainous one. Love your rainbow.

  3. Nobody will complain about that rainbow - it is a delight and certainly cheered me.

  4. I'm not quite sure how I've managed to miss so many of your posts. The rainbow is lovely and definitely deserves pride of place.
