Amaryllis Watch

We have been on “amaryllis watch” for the last week. I bought an amaryllis for Steve for Christmas. His family had a greenhouse for many years and he loves flowers. But he had never grown an amaryllis before.

He planted it January 2, but honestly, it already had a 4 green stem growing by then! Here it is, just 4 weeks later, in full bloom.

I tried to put together a little collage of the flower blooming. I took all of these pictures in the last 5 days, starting last Friday afternoon.  Remember, you can click on any photo on my blog to see a larger version.
