Happy Hippeastrum

I am always glad to see the lovely blooms of

my annual Amaryllis.

This year it is the lovely Apple Blossom.

It has delicate pink venation and shimmering white in its petals.

Such simple markings.  Uncluttered.   Subtle.

My holiday begins when my Hippeastrum blooms.

  1. When mine rebloom, they do it at the wrong time of year, but that’s okay. I love the structure of the flower — those two overlapping sets of 3 petals. And the thrill of seeing an emerging bud, watching it develop to the blooming point, that adds to the whole experience.
