I had mentioned the other day that each of the shop big windows had an amaryllis in the display of goods. Flowers and plants add such a lively touch amongst the assortment of shop things. I had found these cool faux bois planters in New York and thought they would be perfect to house the paperwhites and amaryllis this season. The above popped open with festive glee yesterday and I just had to share. Watching an amaryllis from early stalk to full bloom is really quite something. The flowers on this beauty almost look like the red is painted on with water colors, each stroke visible. Ahhhhhhh.
