I have never grown an Amaryllis but have wanted to. They always seem to be quite expensive, especially since most people don't have luck getting them to rebloom. Today I was browsing in Walmart when I saw that the Amaryllis were marked down to $4. I checked the boxes ( there were a number of them) and found one where the bulb had just begun to grow. So I bought it. Walked over to Home Depot afterwards and lo and behold they had theirs marked down to a dollar but they had long stems already. Bought one anyway. For a dollar I'll take the chance/ There was also a little pink Cyclamen in a 4" pot for a dollar. It came home with me too. I hope all will thrive providing some much needed blooms while I wait for Spring.
In the picture below you can see what my back yard looks like at this point.
Besides gallivanting around Walmart and Home Depot I did manage to get both Christmas trees un-decorated and everything in boxes. I'll deal with those tomorrow.
Thanks for popping by,
