My white amaryllis, backlit by the sun, adds a touch of warmth to this cold winter’s day.
And for those wondering about the bulb encased in silver wax that I posted in early December, its growth has been very slow, but steady. Here it is below, budded up, ready to bloom. The main advantage that I can see to this wax method of propagation is that it doesn’t grow as tall as potted ones do. The white one above is 24″ tall, while the red is half that size. It’s been an interesting experiment to say the least.
Next to it, I have a little vase of daisies from the florist. I find their sunny, little faces so cheerful and they are a nice compliment to the red amaryllis and its toad companion!
