“It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.”
— William Carlos  Williams

I could go on and on about this amaryllis flower, but suffice it to say that the plant belonged to a dear friend, now with the angels, who bought the unidentified bulbs at a dollar store. What fun it was to see them grow and bloom then, and now they are in my care, reminding me of the joys of friendship. Dedicated to a dear friend who is gone but not forgotten.
