A flower grow from the dirt, a lotus grows from the mud

A photo of bright pink flowers against a muted golden-brown background of straw grasses and leaves.

Amaryllis Belladonna :: Naked Ladies

These flowers remind me a bit of the Lotus temperament—grows in seemingly harsh environment—and produces a thing of beauty.

I took the photo almost a month ago, driving away from cabin. The over six mile drive from main road is all dirt. Dust galore by end of summer.

I hereby claim the Amaryllis Belladonna as my spirit plant, supporting the Phoenix rising of the cabin.

My truck is filled with more priming and painting supplies. Back at it tomorrow. Did I mention I have been driving approximately 1,000 miles a week? Slight exaggeration, but still . . . nutty!
