My Christmas Amaryllis


Every year Mama would buy me an amaryllis bulb for Christmas. This year I got one for Leslie and one for me. I finally had a moment where I could get it started and it is such fun to watch how fast it really does grow. I went to Tulsa for 10 days a couple of weeks ago and was worried it would bloom without me being here. When I got home it had 4 big buds ready to bloom. I have really enjoyed watching it grow and remembering Mama, her green thumb and her old green house.
