    Of the Hippeastrum sisters and their music, I prefer April to May….just a question of subtlety and delicacy versus a more brazen, noisier appeal. But that’s just me.

      I think you’re right! Although the second flower is more brazen than the first’s more subtle white with red trim! May’s hippeastrum is busy busy busy

    1. Again, this could be movie theme music. A sprightly Italian romance starring Audrey Hepburn and William Holden or Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.
    2. The calendar in the background says “Basil May” which I think must be a character in a forthcoming Lady Smock story. I’ll get on that.
    3. The green bud is somewhat menacing.
    4. Love the drums.
    5. Look how green the hills are!
    6. I saw a guy on the bus today wearing a New Zealand All Blacks t-shirt and thought of you and hakas.
    7. That’s all for now.

      That’s 7 very good points, and I would respond to each one individually if I wasn’t running late in having to get the dog to the vet appointment to get her allergy pills. The previous music (last week) the calendar said “Fresh Chives April”. She and Basil May might have a thing going?

        My dog has dry eyes and requires expensive goo to be smeared on the lids every day. Good luck with your muttsky.

        I feel a new series coming on! April Ciboulette and Basil May live!

    I like these hippeastrums! They are very assertive and attractive. I particularly like the bud in the calendar picture. But I think the music captures them–they make beautiful noise at one point and then go back to making nice.

      Thank you! I used to have quite a collection, but have moved houses so often that they have been given away here and there – or got lost…
