|Guerilla Gardening with a Christmas Amaryllis|
Have you heard of Guerrilla Gardening? It's the idea of sneakily planting in a public space that needs a little color and love. The school where I work is full of spots like these and a year ago, I planted my Christmas Amaryllis bulbs in a random planter, not sure what they would do. (Don't they like a good freeze?)
Then, a few weeks back, when I was having a particularly grueling day subbing, I noticed it was in full and glorious bloom, right outside the room I was working in! How is that for a moment of unanticipated beauty?
|This corner could still use some love, but doesn't the blooming Amaryllis cheery it right up?|
Since Eric and I are taking down the tent poles again for the summer, (have I mentioned that I am heading off to New York for a month or so?) I have a lot of houseplants that will be needing new homes, and surreptitiously planting them around school will be a lovely way to share and continue to enjoy them.
