The amaryllis opens

Well this is how the amaryllis looks now. It's so beautiful that I certainly don't regret spending $14 on the bulb.

Brendan and I look at it at least a couple of times every day- it's amazing how quickly it all happens. He has been very gentle with it so it has hopefully helped him understand how to treat plants. If only he'd learn to be this gentle with the cats and his toys!
One more in its pot. Taken with flash though so not great (today was a miserable, grey day)

The amaryllis has been doing the sunlight shuffle with the seedlings. Back and forth from one side of the house to the other to catch the rays. Here it is a few days ago before blooming.
