This post was originally shared on April 20, 2016. I was a new blogger and my photo composition wasn’t great. This is one of my all-time favorite bouquets. I purchased it at the farmer’s market. The amaryllis flowers are larger than the ones in my yard. I remember the petals looked like velvet. I’ve re-edited some photos, and I hope you enjoy a second view.
The beautiful red of amaryllis still fills yards in my area, bright red heads standing watch over gardens. I brought the colors in to the bedroom for a bouquet of colors – red amaryllis, snapdragons, and pink begonias.
This sweet bouquet is perfect for my bedroom and brings me great joy.
The beautiful red amaryllis seems to last longer cut and in a vase than it does left on the stem in the yard.
I’m wishing you a day of sunshine and sweet bouquets.

Carol- I love amaryllis. In fact I have 3 red plants in posts in my yard that bloom every spring.
Thank you for being at TOHOT>
I would like to invite you to share this post at our Garden Party Monday, April 25th.
Just drop by my blog to join in.
We would love to have you,

Thanks Laura. I’d love to participate. Thanks for coming by. Have a wonderful weekend.
How beautiful! Our amaryllis bloomed beautifully a few weeks ago and then we had a big hail storm that knocked all the blooms off. Right now it’s starting to bloom again so I’m thrilled. I’m happy to know the blooms do well in an arrangement.
I learned something from you today. 🙂
Thank you so much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We are thrilled to have you. 🙂
Thanks for the lovely comment. I am still new to blogging and I must say your blog and home are so pretty. My amaryllis only bloom once and then it gets too hot here for them to bloom again. I enjoyed visiting Thought of Home on Thursday and look forward to this week’s inspirations.
Carol, I’m so glad you joined the garden party. I hope lots of people see your post…I don’t think many people realize that amaryllis can grow outside. 🙂
It’s our little secret.
Good Morning Carol!
Thank you ever so much for sharing this informative and pretty Spring gardening inspiration with us at the Garden party! Makes my heart happy:)
I had no idea that this is how Amaryllis “worked,” great gardenng tip!
It truly is gorgeous! Love the color combination. Certainly would be a delightful site to wake up to. Tried to hop over and like and follow on fb and Gplus. The links are not working. 🙁 Thanks for sharing with the garden party!
Thanks for letting me know the links didn’t work. I’ll try to fix it now.
Isn’t this just a wonderful time of year when we can enjoy blooms from the garden!
Yes, yes, spring is my favorite time of the year.
I am so happy you are sharing this post at the Garden Party today!
Thanks again for asking me to share.
What a lovely arrangement Carol! Thank you so very much for linking up to the garden party. Your post was completely enchanting.
…amaryllis are wonderful.
What a nice idea, to look back in the past of some Posts. And I see, the captures was wonderful, too.
Have a good week.
That would be a favorite for me too Carol! What a wonderful combination. It’s a good idea to bring forward some of your favorite posts too … you have new readers and more knowledge of “how to blog”. (I am telling all this to myself as well …. after about 15 years of blogging, I could definitely do some look back at old favoroite posts. And I would definitely have to “fix” them as I had little idea of what I was doing back then.)
I started blogging in mid 2016 but the first posts were so bad I have deleted most. The “white page” staring at me was challenging at the beginning and I was very timid to express myself. My first photos were not great – I had to get another camera. I’m not consistently good even now and do not have the equipment many bloggers have. Besides loving flowers, they don’t fly or run away?! ha Sometimes I have taken 20 photos, edited them, was not happy, and then did another 20. Delete, delete, delete. LOL
I’ve never had much luck with amaryllis for some reason – perhaps not the right exposure – but I do so love their vivid flowers. Thanks for sharing at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2022/05/gogh-if-you-can.html!
Beautiful Carol. You captured the both the texture and the red coloring of the flowers.
thank you so much Phil – I try to get better.
Beautifful photos love the vivid colour 🌹
Have an amaryllistastic week 👍
It’s such a beautiful flower. I love the color! So bold, warm yet inviting. It just brings a smile to my face!

A lovely red. As you know, this flower is only a Christmas type flower for people like me living in the Northeast U.S., and that color would be so perfect for that season, too. Alana ramblinwitham
Gorgeous flowers! The color is amazing.
Thanks for sharing your link at My Corner of the World this week!
A lovely bouquet!
I have never grown these but they sure are pretty. Love the arrangement. Thanks for sharing at #aclwcc. Pinned & Tweeted.
I love Amaryllis! I have a few varieties that bloom here.
Amaryllis is one of my favorite flowers too!
Stunning Amaryllis ! Thanks for sharing with Garden Affair.
