Red Lion Amaryllis


amaryllisMy son gave me a Red Lion Amaryllis for Christmas. On the box it said I’d have spectacular blooms in just a few weeks. Well, I thought some how I’d managed to kill the poor thing. It sat there in it’s bright location and did nothing. Then, in just a week, it shot that tall stalk toward heaven and the most beautiful red flowers bloomed all around the top. The box said spectacular and it wasn’t lying. 🙂 These photos in no way capture the true beauty. The colors are much richer and deeper.
