You’ve Got A Spot To Fill

You might remember that we had a glass curtain installed to enclose our entire terrace. As a result, winter has been transformed. No more cyclonic winds. And no more decimated plants. San Geraldo planted a collection of Amaryllis bulbs in a long pot outside the living room doors so that we could enjoy the blooms while inside or out on the terrace. They’ve been blooming since the third week in November and show no sign of stopping. We’ve read all the special instructions for caring for amaryllis bulbs between blooms, but won’t take the trouble. The chiringuito (beach bar) across the street, has three large stone planters filled with Amaryllis that bloom dramatically every spring and are left to the ravages of the weather the rest of the year. They’re thriving. Maybe ours will, too.

YESTERDAY.

“… at least a preview of Easter…”
