I have been enjoying the many blossoms of Spring in Atlanta lately. There are so many trees and shrubs and bulbs bursting out right now. At the same time, I have some plants that I bring inside when the weather turns cold. I have not brought them back out yet because we keep having these dramatic swings in the weather that produce harsh wind and rain.
I noticed a couple of weeks ago the one of the two Amaryllis bulbs that I have acquired over the last few years as Christmas gifts, was sprouting leaves. The other one seemed to be doing nothing. Suddenly, the second bulb put out a long shoot without having any leaves come out and boom, two big, red Amaryllis flowers appear!
We see so many of these around the winter holiday season and it’s not a flower you really associate with Spring but, this was so eye-popping that I thought I would share it today.
