Brightening gloomy days

I potted up this amaryllis a few days after Christmas and voilà, in about six weeks it’s grown and produced three lovely flowers (should be four). It never ceases to amaze me that such a big plant grows so quickly from a knobbly brown lump.

I’m posting this in a brief interval when my broadband is working. It was on the blink all day yesterday and this morning, had disappeared altogether and my landline phones don’t work. I spent over half an hour with BT on my mobile and was eventually told that ‘the fault is outside your property’ which at least means I won’t have to pay to get it fixed. But it may take two to three days! This is very miserable. Pouring with rain, too:-(
