Amaryllis


This Walmart Amaryllis bulb was late
blooming. It was supposed to bloom for Christmas, but was very slow to sprout. It bloomed for Valentine's Day.

Oh my eyes lit up when I saw this photo. What a delightful gift for Valentine's Day.

It's absolutely gorgeous!

I have a collection of amaryllis bulbs that I've staggered the starting times from year to year so that by last year I had some blooming in June. I've just started up some of the older bulbs. I love having them being gorgeous for just as long as I possibly can.

What a gorgeous flower! I like to plant mine outside in the spring and they bloom again in the summer. Only in the south can we do this!
