Amaryllis in Full Splendor



I promised photos of my Razzle Dazzle Amaryllis when it fully opened, and here they are. The name suits the plant as it dazzles and razzles :)
I bought a big fat bulb at a garden center about a month ago, planted it in a small pot, watered it occasionally and it gives back a lot of beauty.
In the second photo is a Christmas cactus that is three years old, and a new miniature rose my stepmom sent to me from Jackson and Perkins. Some of its flowers are white and some are pink; I think it may be two plants in one container.
Merry Christmas to All as the Holy Day draws near.

Wow, I think I got a dud bulb. My poor amaryllis is wimpy this year. It is so lovely to look at fresh flowers in the middle of winter. I do have some tulip bulbs sprouting to look forward to in January =)

Such beautiful pictures, Terra. Hope you have enjoyed this joyous Christmas day.

I would love to have indoor plants, but cats would destroy them!
