In a Vase on Monday: ‘Red Peacock’

My vase for this week is a single flower from the first stem of my Hippeastrum ‘Red Peacock’.

I am sure there are many more imaginative and varied vases  joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden today, so do take a look. It will certainly brighten up my evening and I am looking forward to settling down under a cosy wrap later to enjoy fellow bloggers’ colourful contributions from other parts of the world!

    • It is sleeting and snowing right now Christina. And a winter storm is forecast for the next few days. I don’t think it will be cold enough for much snow though, but the damp and wind is somehow more chilling when out walking!

    • Well, I always make sure I have some Hippeastrums indoors to keep me going through the winter. I haven’t even ventured into the garden for several days now!

  1. It’s a beautiful bloom and I hope it helps warm your day, Cathy! My first Hippeastrum bloom opened today, after I took and posted my Bloom Day photos of course.

  2. Your Red Peacock is spectacular. I’ve always stayed with the single types, but if I keep seeing glorious doubles like this I’ll succumb eventually… 😉 Your setting is lovely also!

    • Hi Cathy. I am feeling very fed up with January, but it is so cheering to see all the other vases and at least we are not snowed in or frozen up! (I think we have what the Americans call ‘mud season’! LOL!)

      • Oh, I am so sorry that January is proving to be tough for you, Cathy – let’s hope you get some rays of sunshine and a hint of warmth before long

  3. A perfectly bold and colorful sight for a gloomy January day. We’re also in the midst of some winter weather today, but the calendar is starting to look a little better 😉
