I spy...

An unexpected mid-summer amaryllis scape!

Red Lion amaryllis, unexpected summer scape

I noticed this scape peeking out of one of my amaryllis bulbs this afternoon.  This is the 2008 Red Lion bulb, which has bloomed faithfully every year. It didn't bloom last winter and I thought it was going to skip a year, but apparently the summer outside kicked it back into gear.  It has lots of leaves, so hopefully it will store up plenty of energy and be able to put on its usual show inside next winter too.
