Two Thanksgivings ago, one of my great-aunts started a new tradition of giving out amaryllis bulbs. Last year, after I dutifully watered mine, it rapidly grew three-foot-tall green leaves, then proceeded to do nothing. I was kind of expecting the same result this year, but I watered it anyway – greenery is greenery, right? – and look what happened.
Not just ONE flower…
Almost perfectly symmetrical, too.
Very trumpet-like in shape, and very bright red! The petals were sparkly, though that doesn’t show in all of the photos.
