The Prettiest Part of the Day

I rescued this amaryllis several years ago from my grocer's 
discount bin. It was just after Christmas and the time
for this seasonal bloom had passed. I brought it home and have 
been rewarded every year since with a long stalk or two of blossoms.
The graceful, crimson flowers generally show themselves 
just when the weather is at its most drearand frigid, 
adding a bright spot to my day.
