My amaryllis last year was a serious disappointment – one flower stalk which began fading before it was full opened. I look forward to a couple of weeks pleasure from this one – two sturdy stalks, each with four blooms. A bit of spring in the midst of winter!
It snowed here yesterday – quite a bit of light blowing snow. The drifts on my back deck were, let’s say, interesting. I was just able to open my backdoor enough to get out and shovel off the top step. Then captured a picture of the drifting snow.
And today my amaryllis is in FULL bloom – 8 flowers at the same time – never been this lucky before. The red just glows.
Finally my amaryllis is blooming. I potted the bulb as soon as I got it at Christmas, watered it sparingly – and finally it’s got flowers. It’s a double (the second stalk will be in flower in a few days). So I may actually have eight flowers at the same time – wouldn’t that be grand.
My amyrillis is fully in bloom – standing straight and tall. Not a double bloom, but lovely nevertheless. The second stalk is tucked in, waiting for this set of four to finish, likely in a couple of days – then there will be four more blossoms.
This isn’t mtg bloom – it’s my neighbour Joan’s plant – a triple amaryllis in full bloom – it’s gorgeous! My house is quite a bit cooler, so mine has grown more slowly – it’ll be at least another ten days before mine will bloom.
