Don's sister, Bonnie, and brother in law, Eugene, sent us a amaryllis bulb for Christmas. I thoroughly watered it and set in near the wood stove, the most consistently and pleasantly warm spot in the house.
Here is a view of it the day I set it out.
I took this perhaps a week later. Notice the new leaf ?
I took this yesterday and as you can see, we have the new leaf growth AND now a flower bud!
I will continue posting more photos of its progress. Have I mentioned I LOVE amaryllis? :)
