We took the amaryllis out of the cold, dark garage a few days ago and put it in the warm, bright kitchen. It loves the light and has shot up - I think if you sat and watched you'd actually see it grow. I really wish it was in a nice pot but never mind. I don't want to move it now in case I upset it.
For some more springtime flowery fun we made some tissue paper flowers- mostly reusing tissue paper (it seems to be the Canadian way to give presents in gift bags and wrapped in layers and layers of tissue paper- handy for crafts!). Brendan helped with a few of the stages but we did two at a time so that at least one would be fit for the vase. (Not that his weren't beautiful, they just didn't stand up or stay together well)
