Garden Bloggers Bloom Day December 15, 2011.

The only thing blooming in my house is the yeast. (I’m making bread today)

I killed all my Amaryllis this past summer. But more bulbs arrived today. However, I may not even have amaryllis blooms next month, January, because it will take at least 6 weeks for blooms to appear.

But enough of the pity party. A ring of the door bell, and This sweet poinsettia was standing there in the hands of my sweet neighbor. “You always give me flowers all summer long. So I thought I would give you one today.

This sweet red poinsettia flower, in a 4" pot, is now sitting on my mantel.

So, my blooms are store bought.

The result of the blooming yeast is here:

Multigrain bread baked in my oven on a pizza stone.

    We were making bread ourselves here today. And I am waiting for my mother to bring my the poinsettia that she brings me every year. Thanks for your visit to WMG!
    Merry Christmas!

    ps – I love your quote from Vita by the way.

  3. You killed your amaryllis? Now you sound like me. What a darling neighbor you have!


  4. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who can kill an amaryllis:) I didn’t even have a poinsettia in time for Bloom Day; what a dear your neighbor is to have brought you one. The bread looks delicious!

  5. The bread looks both beautiful and delicious. Happy New Year!
