Stand Up

Not our Amaryllis

The problem with most of us is that we are afraid to stand up for what we believe, to be witnesses for what is true and right. We want to do the right thing, but we are troubled by fears. So we sit back, and the world drifts about us, and society increasingly adopts attitudes and standards of behavior of which most of us do not approve.
(Gordon B. Hinckley, Stand A Little Taller, 28 June)


Melva has two amaryllis blooming in the north basement window.  She bought these plants several years ago.  One is wine colored and has two blooms and the other is red-orange and has four blooms. They are spectacular.
