These are photos of the Amaryllis I planted a few weeks back from a bulb kit. You might remember me talking about it. Thank goodness gardening is not always counted as a complete failure or a complete success. Because in this case I would say we are walking a line in between the two.
As you can see in the photos the bloom is beautiful; however, what you may not be able to tell is that the bloom is pretty much coming out of the base of the stalk. Typically with an Amaryllis you have a long stalk and the bloom at the top of that stalk.
I still have some hope that we might get another bloom out of another stalk, but that might be wishful thinking.
Oh well, we have a beautiful flower to enjoy so for me that is success enough.
Have a great week!
