Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Birthday Blooms and a Lunch

In October, for my birthday, a friend gave me this beautiful Amaryllis. It was supposed to bloom for Christmas. But instead it bloomed this week.
And it looks like it's going to keep blooming for awhile.

It's got six blooms on one of the stalks.


And another stalk getting ready to open. The flowers are a beautiful salmon color.




So thank you Barbara for my beautiful birthday, Christmas, Valentine flower.
OK, now for some fun news. Kelly, who has a cute blog, Monarch Post, is putting together a blogger's lunch on February 16th at 12 noon at the Oakridge Country Club in Farmington, Utah. So put it on your calendar and save the date. Go on over to her blog for all the details. The more people who come, the more fun it'll be don't you think?

I love your bloom. I got one for Christmas and its soooo slow growing. I love to grow them the first year in the house then I plant them outside to bloom the next year. I had one two years ago that had 13 flowers on it. It was so beautiful until my Rottweiler decided it was a cool place to lay :(

So pretty. I went over to Kelly's blog but didn't see the info anywhere. Roy will be home but he has a dentist appointment about the same time so I might be able to make it. It would be fun.

Yes, this is beautiful!!! What a wonderful gift it blossoms are right now, at this time of year! Like a breath of spring!
My dad always had Amaryllis plants. I remember them resting in the dark basement, and then the beautiful blooms in the winter time.
