For December I upload images to do with the festive season. This is going to be many different things as you can see...
It has become a tradition to have them in our home for Christmas.
Hippeastrum, these plants are popularly but erroneously known as Amaryllis and are cultivars of bulbous plants in the family Amaryllidacea.
The botanic name Amaryllis is taken from a shepherdess in Virgil's pastoral "Eclogues"(An eclogue is a poem in a classical style on a pastoral subject. Poems in the genre are sometimes also called bucolics. Virgilius wrote the Bucolica, consisting of 10 Eclogues).
As a flower symbol it has come to mean "Dramatic", which seems most fitting here!
Hippeastrum is a popular bulb flower for indoor growing, it is Greek for "horseman's star" (also known today as "knight's star").
I love the curves and lines in this.
Hope you do too.
Thanx for your visits and comments, M, (*_*)
