Thursday, April 24, 2008 -- Christmas in the spring?

golf's boss gave her an amaryllis for Christmas, and it bloomed then. She didn't expect it to bloom again so soon, much less so BIG! See the second picture below for proportion of its height (remember, I'm 11 inches tall and it's more than double my size!). The red blob showing below the full bloom is another bud that is opening, and there are two more buds that should bloom soon, but we think these first blooms probably won't still be open and pretty when the second set blooms. Said boss asked, when I showed her a picture of the plant, if we are living in the Little Shop of Horrors! (and she doesn't even know about all of Larry's orchids!) I do love a boss with a sense of humor!
