A Christmas gift from a dear friend. Red Lion indoor Amaryllis. One big bulb in a little green plastic pot.
Water and wait...and wait...and wait. About 6 weeks later a green leaf sprouts forth. Then another and another.
A couple more weeks and a stalk shoots up. This is a rapid rise to dizzying heights. Finally a bud. More waiting...
One by one each flower opens to spectacular glory. A total of four blooms at the top of this very sturdy stalk. The red is truly this gorgeous.
Mr. C and I are enjoying this glorious Amaryllis each and every day. From Christmas to Spring this is a wonderful gift as it keeps on giving. After completion of blooming I understand the bulb can be planted outdoors and just might bloom again next year.
March is here...the sun is shining and we still have snow on the ground. It is cold but with the sun shining so brightly it makes us think it is warmer than it is. Yesterday I shoveled snow off the upstairs deck but only finished about a third of it so maybe today I shall finish shoveling the deck.
I hope each of you are enjoying a beautiful and relaxing weekend. I pray for the safety of everyone experiencing severe weather storms and tornadoes.
