For some reason, I had always been intimidated by amaryllis and had never planted them before. After seeing Pam's beautiful amaryllis in bloom last December, I knew I had to give these a try. I purchased three bulbs, planted them all at the same time, following the timely and wonderful planting directions given by Mr. Brown Thumb. Here are the results so far:
One of the amaryllis has just bloomed.
I sat the flower pot on the floor for the picture and, of course, curious kitty had to come and check things out.
Another is about to bloom and the third one is a complete dud with no chance of blooming.
I love these gorgeous blooms and can't believe I waited so long to grow them.
I played around with the color a little on this picture by lowering the saturation level.
I saw the Cooper's hawk in the backyard by the bird feeder again and got this shot through the window. I've seen quite a few of them sitting in the tops of the trees recently as I've been running errands.
