{Gift Amaryllis Fully Blooms on Mom's Birthday in Heaven}

A rather sentimental day... We went to the funeral of a dear friend and February 12 is also Mom's 2nd Birthday in Heaven.
A sunny day however and a beautiful Gift Amaryllis from sweet friends, given on my birthday, was fully blooming.
Such beautiful flowers really do lift up ones spirit!
A little miracle to see one by one 5 huge flowers unfold.
Sitting on the window sill in our Kitchen.
There is even a second bud, a bit lower, so we might see again an outburst of multi flowers!
Their stamens are very beautiful too.
What a joy such a gift!

In regard to my previous post, about living now with a Pain Free Back, I can add that also this Youtheory Turmeric supplement is available via Costco in the U.K. So for my European readers, that is another option to get it or mail order it through amazon.co.uk (just click on the hyperlink above) for a very reasonable price. Far better priced than the ones offered at amazon.fr and amazon.de as they ask outrageous prices around € 200 per bottle!

  10. Lieve Mariette,

    Nadat ik drie keer opnieuw begonnen ben met deze blogpost lezen omdat de laatste weken jou posten telkens wegvallen en mijn iPad opnieuw gaat laden, een lastig iets wat ik bij geen een andere blogger heb.

    Prachtige bloem die even je zorgen en verdrietige momenten doen vergeten.

    Hier is het al niet anders, het een ben je nog aan het verwerken en het ander kondigt zich al weer aan.

    Liefs,Ger
