 The red amaryllis flower didn't fare well
out in the blizzard for only minutes, wilting.

And by next morning wilted, a casualty of the Blizzard of '15
The driveway was plowed at 5:00 am,
next to where the amaryllis had briefly been

What a beautiful anaryllis!
Great speckles of snow...but... such a sad end for your modele!
