I got this Amaryllis bulb at Walmart right before Christmas. It has been a long wait to see it bloom. I absolutely love watching how things grow. It has always been amazing to me how something can start out SUPER ugly like a brown, flaky flower bulb and turn into gorg.e.ous huge red blooms that you can't take your eyes off. I thought I'd share.

Things are getting a good start 2 months after the bulb was planted.

It is just starting to show its potential.

The first beautiful full bloom!

Look at how many there are! This bulb has turned out to be all bloom and no leaves...but I am not complaining. See, just gorgeous!

Here's the spot I keep it in. Right in front of me at the kitchen sink. This way I can enjoy it with my new window treatment (Yes, I made it, without sewing a stitch.), and the Wandering Jew I recently rooted and planted.

(Sorry about this picture, the light coming through this window will.not.allow for a good shot. Aaargh!)

I love having these bright, beautiful flowers in front of me while I'm doing horrible the dishes.:(

  1. I just grew an Amaryllis that bloomed in time for my Valentine's Day party. It is fun to watch them grow and the color is stunning.

  2. I love amaryllis bulbs, too. I'm not sure where you live but here in east Georgia one can plant them in the ground and they will bloom every year and even reproduce more shoots! My mom has an entire hedge of them and she started with only 4 bulbs! They are such a pretty flower. :o)

  3. That is so pretty! It amazes me too how such pretty flower starts from an ugly little brown ball. I love it! Thanks for coming by! JenT

  4. I think Amaryllis are beautiful and fascinating. You can almost watch them grow, once they start that race upward. I live in the desert, so mine have always been up and blooming before Christmas. Thanks for your comment on my blog post. I'm going to enjoy following the growth of your blog.

  5. Beautiful! I wish I had a green thumb...alas I do not.

  6. Beautiful! That color is just gorgeous and I'm so glad you shared it with us at Inspiration Friday!

  7. Absolutely stunning!! I would probably need 10 of these beauties in my kitchen window before I could begin to enjoy doing dishes. :) Thanks bunches for linking your prize to my blog bash K.I.S.S., always appreciated.

  8. Amazing! I've never had much luck....guess I'm low on patience.
