Amaryllis in Bloom


The snow lays silent over the fields,
temperatures are frigid,
but there are flowers blooming in the warmth of the house.


The amaryllis' label identifies it as Amaryllis Red/White.
So, I do not know its' true name, but it is very tall growing over 2 1/2 feet. 
This is the second time it has flowered, the first was the end of November.
It brightens the kitchen counter and brings me...

Texture is from Betty Jo.

Have a great weekend!

What a pretty amaryllis, Jen! You can save them to bloom again next year - my mom does that all the time. What a nice little taste of spring during the winter time.

Alberta said...

Your colouration is very similar to mine. Sounds like your label is more accurate...mine said deep red! lol I love it nevertheless because of the surprise when she bloomed!

It's beautiful!
We were so unlucky with ours this year. The soil was infested with fruit flies and we had to remove it from the house. Next year I'll be more careful about where I buy my amaryllis.

Absolutely Gorgeous! Love the color. I have one similar planted in wine barrels outside, but they won't come up until April or May. Very healthy and beautiful. Mumzie

Gorgeous color. It would be pretty any time but I'm sure it is even more special in the Winter darkness.

Lovely Amaryllis. It must be a jou to see it flowering in winter. It flowers in spring and autumn in my garden.

Kate said...

Beautiful! And, I love that striking blue/yellow header of yours, too! ;>)

That might be a 'Minerva' Amaryllis. At least it looks like one. Don't you just love those big gorgeous blossoms? They take the sting out of a cold winter day.
