Dancing Queen amaryllis

My second amaryllis of the season opened yesterday.

Amaryllis 'Dancing Queen'

This is Aphrodite (Oops, nope, this was a mislabeled bulb.  It's actually Dancing Queen). It's new to me this year, and is the first double-flowered variety I have ever grown.  I like it!  Not as clean and elegant as a single-flowered variety, but very frothy.

There are three more buds on this scape, and I noticed last night that there's another scape starting to poke out of the bulb.  Should be a good long show!
