Amaryllis




The week before Christmas, I wandered into a Calloway Nursery and found a bushel basket of half-price paperwhite narcissus and amaryllis bulbs. I picked out a dozen of the former and set them up as forced bulbs for myself, my daughters-in-law and a friend. They have all bloomed beautifully and been planted in everyone's respective yards.

Alas, in the amaryllis basket was but one which I believed had sufficient good roots to be worth the $3.49. I bought it, planted it, nurtured it as I have the many in the past, and this week we've been rewarded handsomely with two bloom stalks and 8 blooms.

It just brightens up a winter's day!
