I'm in amaryllis love at the moment. I purchased this beauty of a bulb yesterday at our neighborhood nursery. The color, appearing on the card, seemed to be a pretty pinkish coral.
These two babies above are bulbs I raised from a mother bulb. I've had these stored in the garage for a month or so. I really, really want these to pop and have my fingers crossed that they will. I just potted them yesterday, and the bulbs are not nearly as large as the first one I posted, but hoping for a bloom. Of course I check it every hour to see if there's any new evidence of a sprout. These should turn out to be a bright ruby red.
Below are my little Christmas clutches all done and ready for wrapping and gifting. I'm a little "hooked out" at present... but am sort of jazzed to start a very simple rug that's planning itself in my head. I just need some color inspiration to get started.
Extremely cold and a little snowy here today. Got the fire going and trying to brace ourselves to head out to a movie. Hope you're staying snug and warm!
