Amaryllis...and a bit of bunting too

 So each year I like to treat myself to an Amaryllis and usually I just get one from the supermarket or wherever I happen to see one.
Well this year I treated myself to three really nice ones from Sarah Raven, they were alot of money and I hoped they would be worth it.
Oh my goodness it is worth spending a bit more, I wasn't disappointed.

This one is called Liberty, she had four beautiful flowers on this stem and there's another flower head waiting to take over when this one is done.

This one is called Emerald, I've never seen another like it, this picture was taken just as it opened, shortly after all the flowers burst open, very delicate and pretty.

Last but not least, this one is called Green Goddess and also has another flower head to come and they were all in flower for Christmas day...that was definitely a fluke.
I'm going to put them in the garden over the summer, then lift them and grow them again next year, apparently this is very achievable...we'll see.

After having a look at bunting on pinterest and flickr I decided to try some different shapes, I decided on a sort of square with rounded edges.

Well it certainly brightens up the kitchen window.....I still love the traditional triangle flags though.

Have a fantastic weekend,
Emma x

  1. Very little of this is actually released by the omega replica sale watch industry itself – which is notoriously discreet about sales figures unless they absolutely need to disclose rado replica sale more. Even publicly traded companies that have a duty to shareholders, such as The Swatch Group and Richemont, do not disclose cheap replica watches specific sales figures for brands but, rather, pick and choose to share rolex replica overall growth and declines in various sectors when producing their annual reports. Perhaps the only good semi-third-party panerai replica sale source for data on watch sales is the FHS (Federation de l'Industrie Horlogere Suisse) and, even then, that cartier replica data must be properly deconstructed to understand what it really means.
