More Flowers to Brighten Your Day

Today I want to share a few photos of my Amaryllis.I had two plants this year,one a bright red and the other very softly coloured.


The lighter one,called Apple Blossom,had only one stem of flowers,but the flowers were huge and the stem was very tall.


The red one didn't have a name,but it was very pretty. It sent up two stems,so they remained shorter and the flowers were a little smaller.

 Unfortunately,I did not get to enjoy the red flowers to the fullest.They started blooming just before I left for Nashville and were mostly done by the time I came home.


I like the detail in those petals.


Just for good measure,I will add one more photo from the Christmas arrangement I had.


Flowers have a way of brightening the room and lifting the spirit. I hope you enjoyed this small glimpse of my flowers.

  2. Oh, I enjoyed it very much. It was so comforting coming back here after being away for a couple of weeks and seeing that bible verse in your header. The amaryllis' are absolutely stunning. Beautiful camera work!

  3. Gorgeous flowers --both this post and the last one.... There's nothing that can make a person feel better especially in winter is seeing some beautiful flowers. I've seen the Amaryllis blooms in Biltmore --and love them...

    Thanks so much for sharing... Glad you came to Nashville though!!!!!!
    Hugs,

  4. Just gorgeous! This is a flower that I am not familiar with. They look like lilies! Are they related? A friend of ours has some in his front yard, and said he would bring us some in the spring. I am not sure whether they would be bulbs, cuttings, or what. I think he said cuttings.

  15. Ruth, lovely images of the Amaryllis! We had on this year. It was different again from both of yours. Ours was a bright full red. It seemed to have a slow start but ended up blooming right at Christmas day! A real treat!
