At the beginning of December, Grandma Hjordis gave us an Amaryllis. This was the first one we have grown, and it sure did well in our house. We have all enjoyed its glittery, red flowers. Tillee asked me if I sprinkled glitter on the petals! It just fits into the holiday season perfectly.
It grew 21" tall, and had 5 flowers. Its stalk amazed the girls and led to some conversations about how interesting a field of amaryllis would look! Can't wait to grow another one next year :)
