Every Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden encourages us to share a vase with materials gathered from our gardens.
I haven’t had a chance to participate the past few weeks, but I’m back today sharing a just-emerging amaryllis. The bulb was a gift several weeks ago from a friend. It’s been so fun to watch it spring into action. This one opened just in time for joining in today.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for hosting each week.
So simple and elegant, Susie, with another bud on the way too!
Thanks Cathy. It’s nice how long amaryllis can carry on.
Lovely amidst the greens, such a beautiful flower!
Absolutely perfect Susie! So beautifully photographed too. 😃 Hope your husband is doing well.
Thanks Cathy. I see we’re both enjoying amaryllis this week, although yours is further along than this one. Like you, I have one other that isn’t making any moves to grow at all. Yes, my husband is doing better this week. It’s taken him a while but he seems to be getting stronger. Thanks!
Lovely, and the trimmings around the pot are perfect. 🙂
Thanks Beth, ran out to gather a few greens at the last minute after most of the photos were taken.
That’s the very definition of elegance, Susie.
Thank you Kris! If I’d had more time I’d have felt compelled to stuff more in and around, but I like the spare look so good lesson.
So pretty, Susie. It is great to see you back in blog land. Happy Holidays!
Good to be back Amy, thanks. I may still just pop in and out for a while yet. Actually wrote a post last week or week before but couldn’t get it finished. Discovered it this morning in drafts! Oh, well. Happy Holidays to you too.
Always a good flower color.
Well, not always. Bougainvillea is best in magenta (or whatever that bright traditional bougainvillea color is). Jacaranda is best in blue. Crape myrtle is best in bright pink or any bright color besides white. Some flowers excel at colors besides white. That is why I appreciate flowers that excel at white, such as this one.
It is that time of year for amaryllis.
Increasingly I have begun to appreciate amaryllis this time of year for their long-term bloom. Hope you’re doing well.
Oh so elegant! I love this…my amaryllis bulbs are late to the party this year. Bah!
Thanks. They’re unpredictable for me. Another one here is just sitting biding its time, no signs of growth at all.
Thanks Judy! The flower needed little help from me. Now the second bud is unfolding.
Really pretty. The last photo especially elegant.
Hey, thanks. This amaryllis is shorter than ones I’ve grown before and is much easier to work with.
Oh that is simply beautiful Suzie and what a precious gift 😀
Thank you Anna.
