Amaryllis Cam(aryllis) - Week Three

A broken bone, Ten on Tuesday, the excitement of making our last undergraduate tuition payment, and stormy weather that made it far too dark to take pictures have all delayed week three of my amaryllis watch for a few days. It's snowing today and really still too dark for a decent picture, but Ruby, Rosa, and their new friend Blossom have been clamoring for their photo shoot.

Ruby and Rosa Week Three, with Blossom Week One
Ruby and Rosa have both doubled in height in the last week, but Ruby is still the slow and steady grower, while Rosa is a big show-off that shows no signs of any leaves. Hopefully Blossom will live up to her name with peachy-pink and white striped double-flowered blooms. So far, this is the extent of my Christmas decorating, but I may be working on that this afternoon.

  1. Growing like mad! I need to take a photo of mine, too, thanks for the reminder. And I spy a Christmas cactus in the background!

  2. I love amaryllis anytime, but especially at the holidays. In all the hustle and bustle this year, I forgot to start one. (Oh, well. Maybe this week! It's never too late for an amaryllis!)

  3. Your post reminded me to buy amaryllis and I now have two. I might have blossoms around valentines day.

  4. I'm enjoying watching your amaryllis grow. I'm glad somebody has a green thumb at this time of year.

  5. thank you for sharing the update...and reminding I still need to get to the nursery to get paper whites!

  6. My sister's aunt in law would give a an amaryllis and I did enjoy watching it grow, sadly she passed away two years ago. I am successfully and slowly killing an orchid gifted to me. I just don't know what I'm doing....

    Love your flowers! Hope the bone heals quickly.

  7. You also inspired me to buy one for my Dad. I think he'll enjoy it. How's the patient?
