The Amazing Astounding Amaryllis with the saucer-sized blossoms that I wrote about last week is fading, but I’m happy to report that over the weekend I discovered that Amy has a sequel in the works. (For the original post, click here.)
I intended to document the bud’s growth by posting a photo every few days, but I was busy with family stuff until today, so before Bud gets any bigger, here’s the first picture.
Bud and stem together measured 5.5 inches when I took the photo this afternoon. I’ll post updates a couple of times a week because it’s easier than writing something else it’s still ugly and snowy in the upper third of North America and we need all the color we can get.
