Spring Surprise!

About a week ago I found a bud stalk in the midst of all the amaryllis greenery.  I staked it as it was in danger of breaking.  By yesterday it was in full bloom.

Although I have had them bloom midsummer, I generally think of them as a dead of winter flower.

I have no idea where this came from.  I have no memory of ever purchasing this color.  I think it is many years old and only decided to bloom this year.  I wish`I could figure out what I did during their growing/dormant season last year. Toes crossed that I can bumble my way into the same good fortune this year!

Happy Easter to those who celebrate.

As always, thanks for stopping by.........*s*


  1. It’s a beauty. What a nice gift from your garden.

    1. Hi Lori...I just realized my old computer ate my reply.
      It was and is a. Lovely surprise.
      I grow amaryllis indoors. They would never make it through our winters.

  2. Dearest Suzi,
    You are very lucky indeed. Our white one looked humongous with broad leaves but no budding and no flowers...?!
    Enjoy it for as long as it lasts.

  3. Hi Mariette......This one was a surprise as I assumed that since bloom season was over that the bulb was not going to bloom, this year. I am still trying to remember what I did last summer to get them to do so well!

  4. Wow, that's a great color! Hopefully it's now on the path of blooming annually.

    1. Hi Michele...Thanks. Getting amaryllis to rebloom is an iffy proposition for me!
      Toes crossed for an excellent weekend!
