Amaryllis at Christmas,
is one of the more traditional flowers in France rather than the poinsettia.
White and, or red.
Each year I buy a few bulbs of each: A white Amaryllis, a few white hyacinthe, and some paper whites. I put them in a container, add moss and mercury glass mushrooms to it.
This year as the flowers started to bloom I saw springtime... instead of all white, I have yellow, pink and red! Not my idea of Christmas.
Not a nice trick.
The other day I saw a black flocked Christmas tree and next to it a hot pink one. I preferred both of them to the yellow one. But the best was an older woman in the shop, who saw the black flocked Christmas tree and exclaimed, "A Christmas tree for the cemetery?"
What flowers speak Christmas to you?
