Look! I can grow something

Look! I can grow something

Last fall we planted more than 100 bulbs in hopes of a colorful garden this year. We left behind hundreds of tulips, daffodils and other flowers when we moved from our first house. Now we’re on our fourth. On a whim, I added a few amaryllis to the most recent order. I don’t have a green thumb and haven’t had a great deal of luck growing anything indoors. There are months of waiting to see if the tiny bit of green sticking out from the top will become the beautiful flower pictured in the catalog The first bulb bloomed for just a few days before continuing on its life cycle. Maybe we’ll see it again next year if we treat the bulb properly. The second has maybe a week to go before flowering. I’ll add more photos then.
