(Not exactly) In a Vase on Monday: Red Pearl

I can never bear to cut Amaryllis to put in a vase, so this week’s contribution to Cathy’s meme (Rambling in the Garden) is cheating somewhat. 😉

This is Hippeastrum (aka Amaryllis) Red Pearl with three huge flowers on one stem and another bud coming on as well…

The sun is melting the snow out there, but more is forecast for tomorrow and I don’t expect to see any sign of spring bulbs for a while yet. So indoor bulbs are what I rely on for colour in winter.  It is exciting to watch them develop too.

I have three more Amaryllis bulbs planted, all bearing buds at various stages, which I will of course share as they open. 🙂

What is bringing some colour to your winter right now?
