The amaryllis bulb was started at Yule, and it is a fond tradition of some years standing.

One is always hoping for a riotous and impetuous blooming some time around the beginning of February, an exuberant floral happening to banish the darkness of winter and welcome back the light of the sun.

This year's floral undertaking is a glorious thing - seven huge and rosy blooms on a plant so tall that it brushes the underside of the stained glass chandelier above the old oak table in the dining room.
