Our First Amaryllis

Tillee 12/26

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 :)

  1. Looking at this made me think of "Jack and the Beanstalk!" If that thing gets any taller Ben's gonna have to use some of his equipment to cut it down :)

    Love Tillee's comment about the glitter - cute!

  2. It did turn out pretty. They are such fascinating things to watch grow. Glad it was such a success! :)
