I posted this picture around the middle of December. The first flower stalk ( or scape) on my Amaryllis "Nymph" was blooming. By now all 4 buds on that stalk were done and I cut it down. Now the second stalk has begun to bloom and the flower is a little different. More open and more streaked.
I'm so pleased with the way it looks.
I was in Walmart this morning and went to check if they had marked down the prices of their Amaryllis. Yes, they were down to $2.74 and $3.74 depending on the variety. Of course I had to buy one of each.
Got them planted up right away. As you can see they had begun to grow in their boxes. If you've never bought one in a box I should tell you that they come with the potting soil and pot complete.
The grocery store had these cute planters on sale. In each pot there are a couple of mini Daffodils, some Crocus, 2 Tulips, a Hyacinth and a Primrose. In mine so far only the Primrose and one Daff are blooming.
I've decided 2019 will be my "year of flowers" so if nothing is blooming in my garden I'll search out inexpensive flowers each week.
Thanks for visiting. If you're not much of a Flower person you'll probably be skipping my blog on Fridays.
I love to read your comments so don't be shy!! GM
