Amaryllis and Hostas


My favorite amaryllis is blooming again, probably for the tenth year. It was a gift I enjoyed in a pot which I then moved to the flowerbed outside. It has multiplied and has two scapes each year with about four blooms on each. Here it is from beginning to open on Day 1 up through Day 4:

Several years ago I made a wall quilt inspired by this amaryllis; nothing as beautiful as the real thing!

Amaryllis!!!! When we lived in Houston TX that was my absolutely favorite flower! I do not think we can grow them in Central OR, never saw them (but surprisingly we are able to grow Hibiscus in the late summer which is like a tropical flower). Loved the photos of the plants themselves and that was a wonderful quilt! I have amaryllis-envy :-)
