A is for Amaryllis

Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday round 4 starts a new trip along the alphabet! See also ABC Wednesday Anthology.

This is my only entry for A because I don't want to miss a moment of the inauguration today, and I am going away from my computer tomorrow and will be unable then to post. This is a happy day for America!

Your Amaryllis are very pretty.
My grandmother grew them in her yard in San Diego.I have been watching the inauguration too. I think it is strange my mind wonders the first thing I remember watching on TV is Howdy Doody on a small round TV to day I watched a day in history on my computer.

I'm so glad ABC Wed is on again. It seemed uncertain for a while. Mine will go in at midnight tonight our time.
