Amaryllis, Razzle Dazzle

Hi Friends,
The first photo I took today of my Razzle Dazzle Amaryllis which will have red and white flowers. It fits the Advent season as it gets ready to open, and I wait impatiently to see its full beauty, just as we await Christmas Day. 
Do you see the pretty Christmas cactus in the background? I included the two bottles of Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Juice to show the height of the Amaryllis, and also just cuz the cider is delicious.
The second two photos are of my all red Amaryllis and were taken last Christmas.
I am thrilled to see that Razzle Dazzle has the buds for FOUR blooms.
When it blooms fully I will post a photo here to share with y'all.

It's beautiful!! It's been a long time since I've had one but I remember the excitement of waiting for it to bloom. This year I planted paper whites. They should bloom in time for Christmas...or at least I have my fingers crossed! ;-D

Happy Holidays!

XO,
Jane

We use that same brand sparkling cider for a yummy Weight Watchers recipe with chicken, onions, apples, cinnamon, etc. It's one of our favorite dishes.
