Our little winter garden is in full bloom right now with four beautiful white Amaryllis flowers on one stalk.
This is the most we’ve ever seen at once—and there are even more buds about to open!
Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was our four-way Amaryllis! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! And remember, kindness is everything!
Day 3 of 365. And Now Totaling 2,195 Days In A Row. Here’s the first 366 and the following 365, as well as year three, year four, and year five, and year six of #OneGoodThing Daily!
On this day…
- 1 year ago: A manicure for Mama
- 2 years ago: Cocktail reunion with an extraordinary woman
- 3 years ago: My cutting machine hero
- 4 years ago: Watching cousin Miriam
- 5 years ago: Remembering my girl
- 6 years ago: Satisfaction of Organizing (check out our gorgeous reading nook!)
I had to find out more about this plant, and found this titbit:
“These stunning flowers are believed to mean pride, strength and determination as they stand tall above all other winter blooms. Amaryllis is also a Greek name which means ‘to sparkle’.”
I also found out the difference between titbit and tidbit!
“Americans do not say tidbit because they would titter at BrE titbit. Americans say tidbit because that’s the original form of the word. It’s a really easy one to blog about because I’ve said it before in the comments of another post, where another reader repeated the myth that tidbit arose from American prudishness.”
