My Red Amaryllis Opening

Hello followers, as I promised the Amaryllis is opening and showing us all how beautiful she is. Only one of the flowers is open and will open a little more in the next day or so. The other one will open by the end of the week. We are having a frost warning in the area around so I figured that I better take a photo just in case. So here are a couple of photos for you to look at. I will take more tomorrow if the frost don’t get my plants.

A Special Flower in My Garden

Hello everyone, I am very pleased to see this flower starting to open up in my garden. I am so hoping that the frost does not come anytime soon, so that this plant can show us how beautiful it is. Out of the fifty or so plants I have of the Amaryllis is young and old, this is the only one that is blooming this September. I am slowly bringing in the plants that I want to save, into the house. The weather here is still quite nice but today and the next 2 to 3 days are on the cool side, the nights are getting close to the frost line. So as soon as this plant has bloomed I will dig them up and bring them into the house. So here is my Red Amaryllis getting ready to bloom.
