The First Amaryllis

The surprise scape on the 2008 Red Lion is so close to blooming!

Red Lion 2008 amaryllis almost blooming

I think this is the most leaves this bulb has ever grown in one summer.  There are eight!  And they're sturdy and self-supporting!  This bulb obviously appreciated the fresh soil and bigger pot that I gave it last spring.

(Oh, and pay no attention to that tray of succulents that I have gradually acquired over the course of the summer.  I think we've already thoroughly established that I have a problem with collecting plants...)

Amaryllis are wonderful and this is beautifully grown. As to the succulents, collecting plants is like a disease.
