  1. Very cool, Eliza. A Red Lion even if it’s not.

    So pretty! Late bloomers, I too, have the same color red blooms, two bulbs in one pot…one bulb is an ‘offspring’…one has 3 the other 2 blooms! Also an Apple Blossom with 3 flowers. So huge and gorgeous. They go outmon the deck in the Summer, backmin late fall….must store a lot of sunshine in their bulbs! ๐Ÿ˜

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Alice. I can just imagine yours are lovely. Even though we associate them with Christmas, they are really spring bloomers in their native land. Thus, we who keep them year to year, enjoy ‘Easter’ blooms. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Alice Pratt says:

        I didn’t know that! (about being spring blooms….oops….noticed I added 2 extra ‘mm’s) I’ve had these bulbs for a really long time….need to re-pot!

    A delightful bit of bold color to herald spring’s arrival. (That’s a hint Ma Nature, we’re more than ready!)

    Realizing it’s a wordless post, but what flower is that? Beautiful capture!

  16. I could use this shot today (when I finally saw it) – a happy pop of color on a dreary day here.

  17. Jane Lurie says:

    How graceful and stunning, Eliza. ๐Ÿ™‚
