Spring is coming to Center Lovell

 Spring is coming.  We know because the amaryllis are blooming, the deer are out and the sun is ever higher in the sky!

This is one of my favorite vases ever.  We met Doug Merritt over 20 years ago and fell instantly in love with his graceful crystal hand blown glass vases.  This one works perfectly for the amaryllis that got too heavy for itself.

The deer we noticed out back just hanging around enjoying the snow squall.

So smile, spring is on the way:)
Don't you love Ernest Porcelli's glass plate?!?!

Amaryllis Season @ Harvest Gold

Grandmother Latimer from "2240" in Coral Gables Florida gave us 3 Amaryllis bulbs from her yard nearly 30 years ago. 

 Bill has been caring for them and at this time of year we get an amazing display of brilliant color just in time for the end of winter blues. 

 Grandmother Latimer lived in Miami for over 50 years.  She was an entrepreneur even back then selling Mountain Valley Water with her husband. 

  They had a victory garden with large grass hoppers. The neighbor's avocado tree had the biggest fruit I've ever seen. The only source for the hot water was the solar system on the roof.   
The flowers bloom again in the summer so make sure to look for them when you stop by.
Don't mind Bill:)
