Amy and Bud

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.

    Your photos of “Amy” are delicious – especially now that our weather has gone gray and rainy again!

    (And you know I wanted to change the e to an i in “Gelding” in the worst way – until I read on! ‘Course, I can’t even read a menu without proofing. Sigh.)

    Write on!

      And this morning it is raining.

      On the other hand, I did see a chipmunk scoot across the driveway, and I have heard robins in our neighborhood (although the only sighting has been a pair hopping on a log along the parkway, which doesn’t count because they weren’t in our yard. The one at our birdbath on February 19 doesn’t count, either; we’re pretty sure she was a tourist up from Illinois).
