Late bloomer.......

but still beautiful!




Usually, we like to have amaryllis blooming over the Christmas holiday, but since I only planted this one after the holiday I get to enjoy the beautiful red blooms now.




During the gray days of February, it's beauty is a delight to behold!

What a pretty shade of red! It is wonderful to see live blooms in winter. I have been enjoying the African violets on my wndowsill.

This makes me smile, Donna.

I give my son and grandson an amaryllis bulb every year prior to Thanksgiving. Their bulb was a late bloomer this year. It didn't bloom until well into January, but it was gorgeous, too.

Just beautiful!! I planted one in January and it now has 2 plump buds. I am eagerly waiting for them to open. I almost think they're nicer now when things aren't so hectic. More time to thoroughly appreciate their beauty.
