New England winter weather can be pretty bleak at times, so when my wife is able to show off her skills with blossoming flowers this time of year, it is a special treat. Here are two examples of brilliant colors from plants she brings back to life, year in and year out — Orchids and Amaryllis.
This Amaryllis just went wild this year, producing 6 blossoms on each of 2 stalks.
What a show-off! We loved it.
