Grandmother Latimer from "2240" in Coral Gables, Florida, gave us 3 Amaryllis bulbs from her yard nearly 30 years ago.
Since then, Bill has been caring for them and at this time of year we get an amazing display of brilliant color just in time for the end of winter blues.
Grandmother Latimer lived in Miami for over 50 years. She was an entrepreneur even back then: selling Mountain Valley Water with her husband.
They had a victory garden with large grass hoppers. The neighbor's avocado tree had the biggest fruit I've ever seen. The only source for the hot water was the solar system on the roof.
The flowers bloom again in the summer so make sure to look for them when you stop by.
(Don't mind Bill. :) )
