Happy Easter

Amaryllis Picotee
Although we think of amaryllis as a Christmas flower, we're celebrating
Easter with one last flourish from Amaryllis Picotee.


Amaryllis Picotee

Picotee's lovely white flower has a green center and fine red penciled edge.
I love how the red defines its very sculptural edges.



We'll be enjoying a quiet Easter hanging out with a few good friends, enjoying
good food, and sitting on the chairs we're not normally allowed to.

Whatever you do, however you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. What a beautiful cat.

    I do believe he is color coordinated with your home furnishings.

  3. I was so intent on the details of the petals that your cat startled me!
    He is SO handsome! I love seeing pet photos. They make me happy.
    Happy Easter to you! I hope you have warmer weather now.
    (What's your kitty's name?)

    1. Actually she's a girl. I don't know why but everyone thinks she's a boy. She's actually quite petite and walks around on her tippy-toes, spinning in circles like a little ballet dancer. Her name is Zazu. Zazu Kitts.

    2. (Made me chuckle). I think all cats are girls and all dogs are boys until told differently. Is this profiling? Love what you said about her moves. She's sweet.

  5. Cute kitty! Have a great day!
    We are down to only 4 at my house and it promises to be a lazy, old movie watching day.

  6. Steve, Hope you have a great Easter with your friends and the lovely Zazu Kitts!! Are you old enough to remember the wonderful movies of Zazu Pitts? - I presume that is who the cat is named after!! They were great movies with such style!
    The Amaryllis is magnificient, and being a florist, I am green with envy that I have never seen this beautiful variety. You are a man of many talents and a source of inspiration.
    Best wishes to all my fellow Urban Cottage devotees.

  9. Happy Easter Steve. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you sharing your beautiful home and neighborhood with us. Keeping up with writing a blog must be hard work, but I look forward to reading them every day. I hope to get to the East coast someday, but until then, I live vicariously through your pictures. I think Spring is finally here!

  14. I think Amaryllis should become the Easter flower. How much more 'eastery' could that photo be?

  16. Hi Steve,
    Happy Easter!! Love the amaryllis and kitty. My little Biscuit is sick and spent all of yesterday at the pet hospital.
    Hope all's well and winter is beginning to pass. We've had the warmest March I can remember.
