Amaryllis in the Springtime

My favorite thing about Spring is the flowers.

A couple weeks ago, our gardens in front of the house began to burst into bloom with this beautiful double amaryllis. A shimmery white with pink, frilly edges that gracefully dances in the wind. And although the bloom has passed now, it led the brigade of flowers into Spring and now the garden is full of large bright red, white, pink, and candy-striped blossoms.

Just to the front of our Amaryllis gardens, our roses stand tall with graceful, delicate pink blooms that tower over the purple and blue mini pansies and red and yellow snapdragons. And in each corner of the rose gardens there is a daylilly.

This morning when I woke up, I found the excitement of my day! The first daylilly opened it's little yellow face to the world today! We planted them last year, but nothing ever bloomed.

It's so exciting to see the growth in our yard. I can't wait to see what else is due to bloom!
