Amaryllis Revisited

I think every gardener has a spot in their yards where they just toss in a hodgepodge of this and that (hopefully your whole garden is not a hodgepodge of this and that!) and I am no exception. In a back corner I toss all those indoor-outdoor plants that look too sad for indoors, spent bulbs, and every other thing that just doesn't fit in anywhere else. Much to my delight when I was walking through the garden this week I came across what was once a Christmas amaryllis bulb in full glory, happy as can be - blooming at the end of April! What a nice surprise!

Amaryllis is one of my fav all time flowers. Been missing my California gardens.

Mine have been blooming since right after Easter, they are the same glorious red color and so bright and cheerful in a corner of our yard that I smile every time see the plants against the sea of green they grow by.
