Red Amaryllis


Red Amaryllis 3, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

The last bulb in my Christmas bulb basket is blooming! Until just a couple days before they bloomed, I thought they might be a pink variety. Then they turned into the brightest red blooms I've seen in a while! Amazingly, the bulb sent up three flower stalks and they are blooming in quick succession to one another! So gorgeous!

The rich red of these blooms is stunning in my mostly white apartment! What a pleasant surprise to brighten the snowy mid-winter days!

The blooms are so tactile that I can't help but touch them every time I walk by. I just love gifts like this that give so much joy over such a long time!

I love bulbs. I have a purple hyacinth blooming in a pot right now.

So STUNNING! Mine didn't bloom this year for the first time in 10 years so it was a real treat to enjoy yours! Thanks for sharing.

Wow. Red amaryllis. That is a big departure from what was ordered. They're like a bold bolt of courage during a trying time. A bit brash for your usual color scheme, but maybe just what should have come your way. Hope you're feeling better soon. Your sis.

Wow, they're really red. Definitely not what was ordered. But hopefully a bold shot of courage and strength in rough times. Hope you're feeling better. Your sis.
