Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
As reported in my last post, nothing is blooming outside, so we'll have to be a bit creative. My amaryllis, which I bought after Christmas, is blooming! One bud has three flowers and the other two. The flowers are such a vibrant red, they make me smile. And see the little Easter rabbit decorations that look like chocolate (but are resin, so please don't try nibbling the ears!)? Yes, dear blogging friends, that proves I finally took down my indoor Christmas decorations in mid March! Ahem. It's just that I love them so! And, well, OK, I've been lazy about it.
Here are the blooms up close, just so you feel you get true GBBD impact.
And there real blooms end, but let's use the trick of light and shadow to create more blooms.
Presto! Here's a cute light I got at Ikea. The cord is green and I just happened to have paper in a very close color, so I made some leaves.
And here's a shadow bloom of my amaryllis that I noticed the other day... I just moved a cute new (well, new to me anyway) orange flower pot to look like its pot!
Happy bloom day, everyone, and thanks to May Dreams Gardens for hosting it.
