Last week I shared what I thought was my last amaryllis. It was my last solid deep red amaryllis. Then I got a surprise from a little amaryllis I got as a forced bulb 3 years ago at Christmas and then planted in the yard. Last year no flower. I thought it was dying. It was a little green plant with a couple of small leaves. Then I noticed 2 small buds forming in almost the middle of May. I’ve explained before that most folks in my neighborhood have flowering amaryllis in February, March, and maybe April. My solid deep red amaryllis bloom late in April. Now this little red amaryllis with a solid white center has 2 flowers. I moved my little bunny over to pose him smelling a flower. (No there isn’t a great fragrance.)
When they were both fully opened, I came out late one afternoon to take photos. The sun is on the back of the house and the porch is in the shade which makes it easy to take photos.
I got an unexpected beautiful surprise. Wishing you a pleasant surprises and beautiful days. Let’s end with a Florida sunset and more amaryllis.
