“The Amaryllis Schottische”

This might be a temporary name for this one. It came easily to me while schottisching around in the kitchen, quietly, and I suddenly found myself lilting this melody. They arrive that easily, and all the time, on walks, even in the middle of the night. I sometimes catch myself doing it when reading. As this came along so easily it may be something I already knew, but as yet haven’t managed to find, or it could be inspired from many that came before it, with some borrowing, which is natural. I was about to give it the temporary name of "The Kitchen Schottische" when I looked up to see a window full of large Amaryllis blossoms I’d grown from seed. The madness of that was that I actually ended up with around 30 plants ~ and everyone in our immediate circle of influence, dancers and musicians, ended up with one as a gift. All have since reached blossom, around the 3rd hear of existence… There are about eight large blossoms currently in view here, and more rising from the their bulbs…

I enjoyed dancing to this and lilting it and later playing it, and I hope maybe it will bring some joy to others. An alternate name considered for a short span was "A Schottische to Drive Away Evil Spirits"… ;-) The meal it was built on was a success, tasty…
