I Heart Mother Nature
I never cease to be amazed by and excited about amaryllis bulbs. This one sat there, doing nothing, for a month, and I thought I'd overwatered it and caused it to rot. But no: above, December 19--one stalk and bud.
January 6th: two stalks, three flower buds.
You can see that the second stalk is almost as tall as the first one.
These flowers are so baroque and over the top.
January 25: Stalk number one is finished (that's it on the right) and number two is in full glorious bloom.
So much fun from a $5.99 kit from Ace Hardware!
And after this one finishes (in a day or two), I have an unopened kit from Trader Joe's--white flowers this time.
Wildly in love with my husband B., guardian of Miss Tallulah Mae (the wonder dog), adorer of all canines, editor of books, dilettantish crafter, vintage shopper, lover of libraries, neophyte cellist, and foziewisp.
