A Very Red Mosaic








A Vibrant RED!

My favorite color.

It's been opening for a few days now, 
bringing me joy and hope...
Something beautiful and alive!

Spring is 69 days away now.


Every time I look at it, I think 
about our garden and what kind of flowers
 I'll be planting.

Are you planning your flower beds yet?
Or am I the only crazy one?

Bring on the seed catalogs!

I'm sharing my amaryllis mosaic with Mary at Little Red House...
Come join us, what else have you got to do!

How beautiful! I was amazed when we moved to Florida when I saw these growing in the flower beds! Your red blooms are gorgeous! ♥

Your amarylis is a beautiful deep shade of red.
Thanks for the countdown to spring!

Oh, how beautiful it came out! It's fantastic, and what brighter way to "get some color" in your Winter!

I missed out on having an amaryllis for Christmas this year. Yours is gorgeous!

Vee said...

A lovely red... No, not planning flower beds yet, but I wouldn't mind settling down with a seed catalog for an hour or two.

It is a gorgeous amaryllis and with all the white stuff ( snow) you must be very glad of such a warm vibrant colour!!

Don't you just love amaryllis in the winter? I have one yellow bulb blooming right now. Gorgeous!

Now this is a flower to brighten up a January morning. Gorgeous rich colour!

Karen said...

Lisa, your amaryllis was just the thing to cheer me up this morning, so red, so lovely.

Yes, I'm planning the garden already, though I haven't bought any seeds yet. I have to get to work on this, though! I'm one of 'those' people who kinda likes winter to take a break from the outdoor work and get to some of my other hobbies, so sometimes winter isn't long enough for me. (But I'm odd.)

Karen, how easily I forget those days of being up to my knees in weeds, a week behind on the mowing, 2 bushels of cucumbers needing to be canned and wishing it were winter! I really need to just relax and enjoy the break myself!! If it weren't for snow plugging up the roads, I too would enjoy a longer winter!!

Oh Lisa, your amaryllis mosaic is stunning! I'm a new follower and I look forward to seeing more of your country life. I just bought a new home and I'm really looking forward to seeing what pops up this spring. Hoping for some lily-of-the-valley, peonies, and daffodils. But if not, I shall plant some myself! Thanks for sharing!
Best to you ... Lynn @ Cottage and Creek
