Plant an Amaryllis

Today is a great day to plant the Amaryllis you received for Christmas. If you didn’t get one, buy yourself one this week. They are so simple to grow and quite stunning with their tall bright flowers. On this last day of 2010, it’s an appropriate time to focus on new life in the new year. And since the landscape outside is sleeping under a thin layer of snow (wish we had received more), something growing and alive indoors is a treat. I received two seed catalogs this week in the mail, and whether or not I order something, they are a great way to spend a winter evening dreaming of spring and color. My hope for 2011 is to spend more time outdoors!

Should be blooming in 6-10 weeks

    I love amaryllis! I save them from year to year. This Christmas Eve, Dan came home and started laughing when he saw a half dozen amaryllis bulbs soaking in the kitchen sink. Yeah, I guess I should have used the utility sink in the basement.
