Ruby Tuesday

This is my very favorite amaryllis - it is just getting ready to bloom this year - but I was so impatient, I decided to share this photo from several years ago.  This was a "bargain" bulb from Lowe's Hardware, and after it bloomed the first time in the house, I planted it outside, hoping it would bloom again, but not really expecting much.  This was the flower the second year.



Imagine my delight when the following year, there was an additional amaryllis!  It was spreading!  When I moved, I dug the bulbs up and brought them with me.  I now have 4 separate plants - all from my bargain bulb!  Not a bad deal...

These amaryllis are already in bloom this year - these were transplanted from the home of a friend who was moving.  Lucky me...

I love amaryllis, but mine have to be inside during the winter -- I put them outside in late spring and summer and they seem to love it.

Beautiful, Linda. :)
