Amaryllis: An Angel Message

                                (A surprise in the garden 4/2/14)

Yesterday morning while watering the garden I had a pleasant surprise from nature.  A flower had bloomed that seemed oddly out of place; one not planted by me.  At first I thought it was a lily, but then closer inspection revealed an amaryllis!  Typically a flower mostly related to Christmas, it had surfaced in an appropriate place by the poinsettias.  Maybe the little gnome beside it had been working overtime.

It was one of those instances, where upon first sight, you recognize that there is more going on than meets the physical eye.  A warm feeling spread over me that the garden was doing just fine in spite of the recent upset. (see previous blog).  Curious, I looked for the symbolism, and found that in the Victorian Age the interpretation for an amaryllis was success after a struggle.  It's also a flower that represents a job well done.  When given to an artist, it's a way of encouraging creativity.

So, if you're reading this, take heart that your efforts are appreciated and when you least expect it, you will benefit from the blossoms of a job well done.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,
