Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.~ from The Wonder Years
These amaryllis lilies have been in my parents house for as long as I can remember. Over the years, other lilies in other colours have joined the vibrant brood but when I think of the seasons in the town that I grew up, it’s these reds that come to mind. Once the chill of winter would pass, the winds would start to blow in late February till mid- March. That’s when these lilies would start to bloom and would do so till the end of April. These flowers are an association with my family and my childhood. These photos were taken about a week after my father passed away in April 2010.
