amaryllis

If I had another daughter, I would name her "Amaryllis" - you know the origin of the word, Amaryllis, name for a country girl in pastoral poetry.
My holiday favorite is one simple Amaryllis bulb waiting to blossom!
Do you have one?

So perfect! Love your amaryllis. We have one with two red buds. I can't wait for it to bloom... - Jeanne

I have potted about 20 amaryllis pots this year - some with one bulb, some with three. I have been drawing and painting them at all stages ~ some are blooming and some are just coming up ~some simple and some exotic. They are one of my favorite things about Christmas. I have never thought of the meaning of the name. Thanks for sharing that.
Love the illustration.

I love them. Love your illustration too. For the first time this year I bought some and planted them up with moss on top. I gave one as a hostess gift last week and the other two are working on their big debut.

Beautiful! I have one waiting to bloom, I wish I started it earlier! Also waiting patiently for my paper whites to bloom!

Hmmm...I was just thinking this lovely could be a wonderful Christmas card for next year's etsy shop. Seize the moment! :)

It makes me think of The Music Man. :) I saw an amaryllis display at the store the other day. Wish I had purchased one. They are so lovely.

I love amaryllis. they remind me of my wedding. we used them all over the cocktail area. this reminded me to look for some for my own house. i think they look great on a mantle. thank you!

Shhh... I never had a amaryllis. They are pretty, but I don't have a green thumb.

I love your illustration my friend as always. I could be the president of your fan club! xo
